Goodbye, dear, sweet, beautiful, smart, funny Kay. I love you so much and miss you already. Normally you would be the first person I'd call to sort through this sadness and there is a huge loss without you in my world. You are now in God's world and God must be so happy to have you back. I hope you are experiencing all the love you constantly gave to an infinite power, and joy beyond our wildest comprehension here on earth, in these bodies. I am so grateful to McHoul Funeral Home for allowing me to have been a part of saying goodbye to you thanks to the live streaming as I cannot travel to New York due to the pandemic. I love you and can't wait to see you and give you that hug I was so looking for to giving you.

Kay was my next door neighbor for the last 7 years and I’m so grateful to have known her. She really was the sweetest, kindest, loveliest person. I’ll so miss our conversations and visits. God has gained another angel.
