I only met Kay once but saw a testimony to her life as a Christian everyday I worked with her son Freddie. What a wonderful legacy she has. Praying for comfort for the family.
Sincere sympathy to Kay’s children and grandchildren. Growing up we were close friends as well as cousins but after moving up to northeast Mississippi I wasn’t able to be with her very often. Still, I miss her just knowing that she’s gone from this earth. It is a
comfort to know that we will be united and spend eternity together along with so many
of our family members in Heaven.
My sister, my friend , beloved. I miss you so much already. I love you so much. You are beautiful inside and out, and the light shining from you co.es from God. You have been reunited with the love of your life and your brothers and so many others. Rejoice, rejoice.
