Mother, my Treasure The world gave me bread and my butter, The world gave me pleasure and pain, It taught me the words I should utter It gave me the sunshine and rain. The world gave me money and pleasure And also the wisdom to see, It gave not my one greatest treasure For God gave my mother to me. From the writings of E. Johnson

Kay was a very special friend of 20 years. She was so fun to travel with, have in my home, visit in her home, take shopping, go out to eat with or just sit and visit with. She was always interested in my family as I was in hers. She will be greatly missed.
