|May the Lord bless you and hold you in the hollow of His
hand, Nancy, as time and the memories of your 20 wonderful
years give you comfort. He was not only hilarious and a
terrific tease but a tender-hearted, sweet-spirited man. I'll
never forget the 'piggies trim' trips to Asbury for brother
Strauss. I know Helen and Strauss really appreciated all you
both did for them. As I said to Kay on our 'sprinkle trip' for
my Mother," If I don't see you again; I'll see you again, and
we'll catch up." Eternity is stretching out before him and we'll
see him again. The comfort of eternity is great comfort,
indeed. Thanks for the note. I'll be praying for your peace in
this lonely time. Keep looking up! Great Video Tribute!!|

|I am very sad to hear of Kay's passing. I worked
with him at E.Z. Paintr for 16 years. I loved to
hear him tell his stories, jokes. Especially the
one about the haired lip man! He made me laugh
many times. Kay was a good man. I send my
condolences to the family. <3 Barbara Dykes|
|I was deeply saddened to hear of Kay's passing. I worked with Kay back in the Thomas Industries days ( 1971 -89 ). He was a fine friend. He even made home-made wine for a few company bus trips to UT football games in Knoxville. I hadn't seen him for some time, but I'm sure he will be sorely missed. My deepest sympathies to the family.
|Nancy so sorry for your loss, will remember you in
my prayers, God bless.|
|Aunt Nancy I am so sorry... Uncle Kay will be missed so much
but will never be forgotten... Rest In Peace Uncle Kay... I love
you so much..|
||Vanis Cutshall, Glenda Honeycutt
|Nancy, There are no words to tell you how sorry we
were to learn of Kay's passing. You two were like
2 pieces of a puzzle that fit together perfectly.
I will always remember teasing him about his hush
puppy recipe,and giving the Preacher's a hard time
at revival. He was truly one of a kind and he will
be missed greatly.|
||Mike and Margaret Ward
|Nancy...we are so sorry for the loss of our
precious Kay. Never saw the man that he was not
joking, aggravating or just basically having a
good time. You guys were such a wonderful pair
and truly belonged together. Kay was a friend
to all and we are so thankful that we could call
him our friend. Remember all the good times you
all shared, which we know were many, and we know
most everyone you talk to will have a story to
share about him. Cherish all those memories.
Know that we love you Nan, and so did Kay.|
|I will miss Kay smiling face coming to see us he will be dearly miss |
||Allen & Susan Jackson
|Nancy, Our thoughts and prayers are with you and the family. Kay was a good friend and I'll always have fond memories of him. The stories that he told me of his military days and of Homer Pease when he was with the Guard, I'll always treasure since they put a smile on my face as they did his. Sincerely and In Your Service, Allen & Susan |
||Sandy Ramsey Turnmire
|I'm so sorry Nancy. I didn't know he was sick.
God be with you.
