    Pat Roth Says:

    I am deeply sorry for your loss. I worked with Kay for many years in Waverly Schools at Windemere View and adored her. Kay was a great colleague and always kind and caring with students. Words of comfort seem to empty when your life is shattered by the loss of someone you loved so dearly. During this holiday season of miracles, may the sorrow in your heart be cradled in gentle hands of hope, healing, and peace.
    With sympathy,
    Pat Roth
