    I have known Kay all my life. We grew up at Albright United Methodist Church here in Ponca City and graduated from High School together. For years I remember going to her house every Saturday morning to help with her younger sister and spending some time with her Mom, Dad And Linda. Still nice memories. Her Dad was such a big teaser and always made us laugh. You will be missed dear friend. Rest peacefully. Hollie
