Lisa Dunn says:

I first got to know Kay at Main Street when I was a teenager. I always thought she was so beautiful. She was so sweet to me and supportive. I have memories of her when I attended “Campus Night” and all our Short Mountain Retreats. All us girls, Carol, Laura, and JoAnne, loved being around her. Later in life as I grew older and went thru so many life changes, she always greeted me with that smile and hug. She genuinely cared about how I was doing. She was a kind, sweet soul that had a great influence in my life. I was blessed to know her. My love and prayers to the family. Love, Lisa Jones Mathis Dunn

judith driver says:

we were friends as children and spent time going to the swimming pool; skating on the sidewalks in town ; going to Earls grocery and roaming around the neighborhood; she will be missed by so many

Dana Smith says:

I am so truly sorry for the loss of your mother. I had no ideal. I was reading Thunder News and saw it. That broke my heart. She was so beautiful and kind. Belinda, I am so sorry for you. I know that a loving soul will surely be missed. What a precious angel. I love all of you.

Pat Barton says:

I was so sorry to hear of Kay's passing. I was privileged to have known and respected Kay since our childhood days at East Fort Street Church of Christ. She impressed me with her diving ability at the Manchester Swimming Pool during my high school years, and college years when I was the lifeguard. She was the only female diver who had perfect form, and she would leave ripples in the water instead of a splash. Kay was a wonderful person. My prayers go out to comfort Dwane and the family.

Judy Hodge says:

So sorry to hear about Kay's passing. She was a beautiful friend to my mother Jean Dauphin and our family. Loved her so much!
