Kay was my friend from the day her family moved into the house across the street until her homegoing....even tho we had a difference in age, we were always friends. In recent years she came to my house to take me with her to the RED COAT reunion every year. We talked often and visited when we could. I do consider her one of my best friends. I feel like I lost a sister. My love goes out to her kids and grandkids....y’all can all be comforted, to be sure, that she is in Jesus arms. I’m just happy that I know we will meet again...........Sandra Kalousek
