A true friend that I wish I would have known many years before I did . She worked to help my brother overcome his addiction to alcohol . Many times when our family was so discouraged and unable to help him Kay kept working with him until he finally overcame his habit . We talked flowers and gardens a lot. She was one of those green thumb people who could grow anything . I'll choose to remember her the way she was when we met , Sharp minded and full of life.
