Dear Christi, Pam, Jeff and Amy and your families,
I was so sad to hear your beloved Momma Kay had passed. She was a dear lady and a good friend. I am so glad I got to see her play this past Sunday at church, and all the years (decades) from the time I was a youngster. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of you.
Love always, Diane Bonyak
