  • Aunt Kay was very special to me. She was very loving & caring to me after my own mom went to be with Jesus. Always loving, caring and smiling! Always letting me know that I was loved. I believe that Aunt Kay touched more lives than anyone will ever know. Our prayers are with all of the family for God’s Peace and Comfort.

  • Dick, Keith, Patty & Family,
    So sorry for your loss. Kay was a wonderful and courageous lady. Today and always, may loving memories bring you peace, comfort, and strength.

    Love, Melissa

  • Dear Uncle Dick, Cousins Keith, Mindy, Jeannine, and Sarah-
    Aunt Kay (ya’ll know my middle name Kay was for her right?) was a warm and wonderful person. She meant a lot to me- she was always offering me opportunities my parents could not afford or had the time to do. I think my trips to Avon Lake to hang out with you guys (and the horses behind you) and the long trips camping all over the place helped me widen my world. Uncle Dick would *always* pull over for ice cream and Kay just smiled- even though she had to know how hyper 6 kids in a car stoked up on ice cream would be. Kay was a loving teacher to her nieces and nephews as well as her classroom kids. She made the place a world of wonder- explaining wooley worm caterpillars, how to cream butter and sugar for cookies, or a better way of finger placement on the piano. She was cheerful and positive- and kids were always welcome in her house. She was unfailingly kind to my mother after my father died, and it comforts me to know my mom was visiting Kay and Dick watching old home movies the day she passed. I will miss Kay very much- many hugs and much love to you all. Best- Kimberly (nee Cook)

  • I recently read of your loss and wanted to express my deepest sympathy. May you find comfort at Acts 24:15 ” And I have hope toward God,which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.”

  • We are so sorry for your loss. It is such a blessing to have had your mother at Danielle’s wedding.
