I remember great fun at Kay and Roy’s farm. Milking a cow for the first time, playing hide and seek with the cousins, music and lots of family. Being a town kid the farm was a great adventure. Kay had a wonderful talent in her painting and I am privileged to own a number of her works. My thoughts and prayers are with you as you celebrate your mom’s life. She will be missed.
