Cousin Kay

Last Friday evening, my cousin Kay, in Florida, lost her battle with cancer. She was 64 years old. We have known that she was battling the disease for about the last two years.

I remember spending lots of time with her when I was a little girl. Her family lived in Denver for many years and our families got together weekends and holidays. She accompanied us on a few summer trips to see our grandparents and cousins in St. Louis. I was always in awe of her, she was a teenager and I was still a young girl.

Our family will miss her terribly. As many grandparents these days, she was raising her grandkids. She had an enormous heart! May she rest in peace.

Hey P - finally found time to visit (6-19-2008)and the first thing I did was go to this blog's time frame. Thank you so much for remembering Kay this way. I get emo over so many of your pics, blogs and paintings. I so wish Kay had been able to further explore her talent and creativity. Please never take for granted the time you have been given to enjoy your talent. You are blessed and bless us by sharing. Thank you. Love ya - Debs
