You were a mentor to me a big sister to me from another mother. I loved being around you, if I came to you with a frown on my face I always left with a smile on my face. We definitely had a lot of memories together. I love you Kay

    My first memory of You and the rest of my cousins was in Basilone Homes a project that military families went to after WWII. Our dads were in different branches of the Armed Services. Kay could have been a Stand-up Comedian because she always made people laugh. She loved to talk and always had plenty to say. Kay LaVonne I miss talking to you, our visits and all the adventures we experienced together throughout our lives…too many to list here. Now it’s your turn to rest in Paradise my sister, my friend, my lil cousin. I love you girlfriend! 🌹💯✝️🙏🏽
