  1. Dear Walt and family,
    There are no human words that can make the hurt go away, or help you feel better, so We are praying that you will feel God’s arms holding you all during this time and that His words alone will remind you of His constant love and comfort. Know that we are praying for you all and that we are here when you need us.

  2. Dear family,
    In this time of sorrow, my condolences are with you. And may these beautiful words from the Scriptures help you to endure, for Jehovah is the God of all comfort. “Do not be anxious…..but in everything by prayer and supplication along with thanksgiving, let your petitions be made known to God; and the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus.” Isaiah 26:4; 2 Corinthians 1:3-4; Philippians 4:6-7 NWT. Peace and many happy memories of Kay be with you.

  3. In half a century of teaching women in Sunday School, I never taught anyone I loved more than Kay. She was unique.
