I am so sorry for the families loss. I worked with Kay at Waffle House. Kay was the sweetest person I ever knew. She always had a smile and a friendly hello for everyone no matter who they were. I loved Kay and I will miss her. I will always remember when people would ask Kay why she was so nice to the homeless and the vagrants that would come into work Kay would just smile and say I see JESUS'S light in everyone. That was Kay. She will be greatly missed. FROM Maggie Patterson.
