    To Kay's family:
    Kay and my Aunt Mary Bresette were the best of friends,,,they enjoyed bridge together, luncheons and outings and frequently I would be somehow involved.
    I extend my sympathy to her family and smile thinking that her and Aunt Mary are together playing bridge..Kay was a lovely sweet lady,,,

    Dear Holdaway family, I am so sorry to hear about your loss. As your hearts are full of grief and pain, I pray that your family will draw comfort from the promise from God found in John 5:28, 29. Here we are assured that soon our loved ones will be resurrected back to life. May God prove to be your true source for strength and hope during this most difficult time.
