Kay was wonderful coworker and friend to me while we worked at the Army Heritage Center. She was professional and highly capable while serving in a demanding position. I’ll miss seeing her on returns to the facility. God bless.

I also met Kay when she began her career at Carlisle Barracks in Transportation many years ago. I still remember having attended your wedding! Over the years since we worked together I always enjoyed our visits when we would catch up with each other at concerts when the Shbg band played or when we would see you out and about. Will miss that smile! Our sympathy to you, Mike, Sarah and Laura.
