    Rick & Family, as I look at this tribute to your mom, I cannot help but bring myself back to the times I visited and sat at her kitchen table and had coffee and she would show me pictures of the family she loves so much. There are many people who will miss her and in time the wonderful memories will sustain you. God Bless all of you and may sweet Kay rest in peace. Arleen

    I knew Kay from the water aerobics class at Cedardale. What a lovely, funny, sweet, kind woman that she was. She adored her family – her boys and her grandchildren and they brought her much laughter and love. I really got to know Kay after her son died. Perhaps having gone through the suicide of a family member, I had a more immediate connection to her emotionally. We spoke much of loss and grief but also of all the happiness and love and joy that our lost ones had brought to us. I am sorry for your tremendous losses over the last two years. Kay was the quintessential class act – always with a kind word, a hug and a real interest in the OTHER person. My thoughts and prayers are with you. janet schiavoni

    Dear Rick and Family, Please accept our sincere sympathies for your loss. We met when she and your dad purchased our home on Willis Ave in Medford, and we became fast friends, which we are sure is no surprise to you and your family, since she had such a loving and giving nature. We have fond memories of her when we played cards and will always hold them dear, and we hope that the wonderful memories you and your family made with her, will bring you all solace.

    My deepest sympathy to Rick and family. Met Kay about 12 years ago and
    immediately became friends. She teased me about being older than her
    (1 month) Although I had never met her grandchildren, I felt like I
    knew them I heard so much about them. Will miss our lunches and long
    chats on the phone. She will be missed by all who knew her. She will always
    be in my heart.
