To all of Kay's family and John, I just learned of Kay's passing. I am so sorry. Kay was a special special lady. I did Kay's hair in Springfield for many years and then in Palm Desert , Ca. She was not only a dedicated client but a wonderful friend! I loved so many things about her, especially her great attitude, her crazy sense of humor and her contagious laugh. I will cherish the many talks and memories I have of her. She so loved her kids and grand kids,and felt very blessed to have had two wonderful husbands! I was deeply touched to see a picture of her and I in the pictures! Thank you for that! My prayers and thoughts to all of you! Heaven has gained quite an angel! Sincerely, Kathleen LaBonte
