We want to extend our deepest condolences to Bill and the family. She was an amazing, wonderful, talented, and kind person who loved the Lord. I know she’s rejoicing in heaven, but she will be greatly missed here on earth.

Bill and Tonja my condolences for you and all of your family. Kay was such a kind and caring person. Always prayed with me for our families. We talked many times and shared our testimonies with one another. I am so glad I was able to be her realtor and get to be such great friends. I will miss my talks with her. My prayers are with all the family. May GOD Bless all of you today and always. GOD has another great Angel watching over everyone.
