  1. Mark, Linda, Val and Vince, I remember Kay fondly. For many years I considered her to be a second mom when she and Ed were involved with the Grayslake Colts. I am sorry for your loss and will always remember her as the wonderful person that she was. Eric Lindh, Lindh8@aol.com

  2. Kay was part of a great family that influence all around them. Including myself. From the first night I met them and dinner included a spaghetti fight I was hook. RIP Kay and go join the Boys.

  3. Vince & Val – My deepest sympathies to your extended families. I will always have fond memories of your mom as our Cub Scout Den Mom. Sitting at that long kitchen table eating homemade snacks that your Mom would provide. Every so often, I also tell the story of the one (and only) time I sat in your Dad’s recliner, and he walked into the family room ! The look on Vince’s face was priceless !
    Your parents welcomed and loved us all into their home, and that same love continues thru each of you.
    With Deepest Sympathy,
    Michael Krumrey
