  1. P.S. I am unable to make the service today due to a big all class reunion we are in charge of today.

  2. I was very sorry to read of Kay’s passing. I met her when I lived in East Avon between Sept. 1995 and August 2006. She is related to our family through our great-grandfather, Peter Arthur, Her Mom’s Grandfather. Kay was a beautiful, intelligent and sweet woman, and I enjoyed our lunches together. My sympathy to her family upon her death.

  3. Dear William and cousins,
    I am deeply saddened to hear that Aunt Kay has passed. My condolences to all of you. I have many fond memories of Aunt Kay and always enjoyed visiting her & the family. She had a great connection with kids, she was a good mother & homemaker, I loved my Aunt Kay. I enjoyed her sense of humor the most.
    RIP Aunt Kay
