To all of Kay’s children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren and all of her siblings.

I remember Kay as always smiling and cheerful and how kind she was to me when I lived in St. John’s. Dad was so happy to see Kay and most of her siblings when he visited me when Jimmy and Bun had everyone at their place. It meant a great deal to Dad to spend time with everyone. He loved that you were all close to one another and spoke fondly of all of Uncle Pat’s children.

Kay was certainly a very special lady and will certainly be missed by all of you.

May your precious memories bring each of you comfort during this difficult time.

With deepest condolences and sympathies to each of you.
