Celebrating the life of Karen "Kay" Kinard
Thank you for signing Karen "Kay" Kinard's Guestbook
I am so sorry to hear of Kay's passing. I have so many warm memories of birthday parties when we were children growing up in Williston and then the school years at WE. I haven't seen Kay since we graduated in 1967, but I have thought of her so many times through the years. May you know God's love and comfort now and in the days to come.

I am shaken to hear of Kay's death and am praying for her and all who loved her. We were friends in kindergarten and that friendship continued through high school. I am sad to say I never got to see her after graduation but I have thought of her many times. Even though friends are far away for many years, it doesn't means they are out of our hearts!

So sad to learn of Kay's passing. I can never forget the many years we spent running back and forth between our two homes on Springfield Rd. Out of touch for many years but can vividly remember fun times as if yesterday. Prayers for you and all of the family.

Karen was a wonderful friend to our family. She was always generous and loving. I know she is with her lovely Mother. May she rest.

It has been many years since I last saw Kay, but I have been filled with memories since learning of this very sad news of her passing. Toni, Dennis and all in the family, I am praying that God will comfort you during this difficult time. Gail Walden

Kay was my best girl when we were next door neighbors on Furman Street. It was great going from kindergarten to graduation from Williston-Elko with her. I will try and send a picture from 1954 of Kay and our neighborhood gang. Philip McClain
