I'm so sorry for your loss. I worked with Kay at Roddy's years ago. She was always a sweet lady.

I'm so sorry for your loss Johnny and for all of her family members … I worked with Kay for years doing hair and ran into her a few years back while she was waiting at OUMC for scouts to get over …. I'm sad to hear this. My condolences 💐
