    My thought are with you and your family during this very difficult time. Take the time to reflect on all you did this summer and on all the wonderful memories recent and from years ago. Try to write as many memories down as you can so that they don’t become a blur as time goes on. You mother was a wonderful woman! Big hugs! See you soon.

    So sad to hear of Kay’s passing, such a wonderful community member. Kay was always involved with our local Hospital and our local health care. She knew what our hospital services meant to the East Parry Sound residents. I relied on a weekly basis Kay’s knowledge about health issues and was never shy of voicing her opinions. Thank god I say her and I were on the same page . I have missed our conversations on how we could improve our health services for our communities. Sympathy to her lovely family and especially Frank, I have very fond memories and conversations with this intelligent man. Kay. Rest in Peace ,see you on the other side my friend
