    Penny,I am so sorry for your loss,Kay and I went to school together from 1st thru 10th grade.She was such a sweet spirit.

  7. My deepest condolences to the family. May God’s future promises at John 5:28,29 of an earthly resurrection and Revelation 21:3,4 of no more suffering or death bring you comfort. Until that time comes, God assures us at Psalm 34:18 that he “is close to the brokenhearted” and “saves those who are crushed in spirit.” So he understands your pain and grief and is eager to help you by giving you the strength you need to cope during this most difficult time. (Philippians 4:13)

  8. Sorry for your loss. Praying for family.

  9. So sad to learn of Kay’s passing. I met Kay a few years ago on Facebook thru a mutual friend, Johnnie Bradshaw. She was wanting to attend one of his shows featuring an Elvis tribute artist but didn’t drive at night. I offered to take her. I took her to several shows after that. Such a sweet sweet lady.

    • She told me about going to that show. It was really nice you picked her up so she could go. My sis was a sweet,caring and lovable lady. Thank you for your conodolences,

  10. I had the privilege of living 2 doors down from Kay, Blake, Laura and Billy for several years before they moved to Florida and we moved to Midlothian. She was a very sweet woman and would help anyone. We had some crazy times in the neighborhood back then. She will truly be missed. Laura your in my prayers.

    To all the family our deepest sympathy. We met Kay when Blake and Doug worked together years ago in Dallas as electricians as had some fun times fishing, partying and just being good friends. We will miss her as we do Blake but they’re together again.

    Penny and Grady, so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with y’all. This is a memory I remember as a child. Kay, Mary Ann, Cathy and I would be playing Miss America. We had a spotlight and we would have the swimsuit competition. Cathy and I never won because Kay and Mary Ann would always vote for each other. Fond memories.
