What I would not give to clasp her hand
Her dear, sweet face to see;
To hear her voice, to see her smile,
That meant so much to me.
You left behind an aching heart,
That loved you most sincere.
I never did, nor never will
Forget you, Kay my dear.

    Remembering Kay

    To Kay’s family, her son, her husband, her friends… my heartfelt sympathy at your loss. This is a difficult day to imagine. It sounds trite, but I do wish for you peace in the acceptance and understanding of the void that Kay’s passing has created, especially for her son, Ty. I was just thinking about her a moment ago. And earlier today. And last night. And earlier yesterday. And yesterday morning. And the day before that. And the day before that... thinking about her... Kay. We created some amazing memories together. I hear her voice inside my head when I find myself humming James Taylor’s “Fire and Rain,” the first song we sang together with our guitars. Eventually, our journeys took different paths and, though our own sense of time was altered by miles and circumstance and turns, I am struck by my feelings for her… expressed, ironically, through the very lyrics of “Fire and Rain” that we once shared and sang together: “I've seen fire and I've seen rain I've seen sunny days that I thought would never end I've seen lonely times when I could not find a friend But I always thought that I'd see you again.” For a time, we had a friendship where we would talk and talk and talk and talk for hours… and now I am bereft of words at the moment when my heart is feeling so many, many things, but my words will not find their way to those feelings. Remembering Kay… a soul who touched so many lives… with wishes that our collective memories will lift us up, and the memory of her smile will sooth our bruised hearts.
