"To my dear cousins, Words cannot express the sorrow both Bob and I feel for your families right now. Aunt Kay was the sweetest lady. I remember going to her and Uncle Chuck's house when they lived on the farm. One time we got there just as she put supper on the table. I can't remember what critter Uncle Chuck had brought home but it still had its eyes in it after being cooked. I was shocked. She offered me some but I couldn't eat any. She always made the best food.i know my Dad welcomed her home. He loved her and Uncle Chuck so much. May your memories sustain you through this time of great sorrow. Love, Bob and Juliee Kurtis Mathew, Sara and Josh Morgan, Isabelle, and Alayna"
