    So sorry for your loss. Kay was so much fun to be around…always laughing…always smiling. She will surely be missed by her family that cared for her very much. It’s so hard losing the people we love.

    My thoughts are with you all during this difficult time. Aunt Kay always had a smile on her face and gave the biggest hugs. Sorry that I can not be there with everyone today.

    It was nice to know a person like you. We always had a lot of fun on Thursday night Shuffleboard. You were always thoughtful to bring in food dishes which I enjoyed. You always had a smile on your face and we would joke around with each other during our shuffleboard game play. You were a good sport when me and Jim Morgan would harass you at times.
    May God bless you, we will all meet again some day.

    Jim & Family,

    I can’t begin to express my sympathies to you all. You and Karen were such a welcomed sight at the American Legion. Our games of shuffleboard were always a great time. Karen contributed so much with her preparation of food to the post. I am sure all her efforts will be missed.
    Thank you both for your friendship…

    I will never ever forget you coming to see me regularly when I was at AI DuPont in Delaware in 1992. I lost 40 lbs in the hospital and you basically forced me to eat. You would bust into my room and just say “DUDE LET’S GO!”

    Love Always,

    The Barrett Family
