    I’m so sorry for your loss Josh, even though I didn’t know your mom I’m sure I would have loved her. She was a great role model, it shows on how she raised you. You are well mannered and kind to others and I’m sure you’ve made her proud.

    I am so sorry to hear of Kay’s passing! I have wonderful memories of playing at her house growing up with her daughter Keb! Kay always opened her home to all of us neighbor kids and made life fun! I remember one time as young kid Kay decided to play with Keb and I and she chased us acting as if she was a giant . I just remember hiding under the dinning room table scared silly! I now am scared of tall people and at 55 years old the memories at that house on Boone street still fill me with happy memories and warm my heart ❤️ , Thanks Kay for being a great mom to my best friend Keb and making our childhood so much fun ! Prayers for all and now rest and know you will be missed and remembered for ever !
