    Lisa Edwards: My heart breaks today. Aunt Kay will be missed so much. Greatest smile and contagious laugh will be two of the things that I will miss so much. She can now be with Grandma, Grandpa , Uncle Bobby, Aunt Ginny, Uncle Norman, Uncle Fred, Chey, Jon, and Tim. If I missed anyone, I apologize, but not meaning to, if I did. I am sure she has been welcomed with open arms. She is in a better place, and it is hard for us to let go sometimes because we loved them so much. Love you forever.
