Condolence From: Chris Steineger
Condolence: I served with Kay in the Senate for many years. Back in those days, I was Democrat and she was conservative Republican, and we got along quite well. She was a true "Iron lady" and unafraid of any issue or anyone. I always respected her demeanor and enjpyed our conversations.

Condolence From: Pat & Mary Gomez
Condolence: We were so sorry to hear of Kay's death. Kay was such a good friend to me (Mary) during our political heyday! Kay was always faithful to her beliefs and to her friends (and constituents.) Kay was the lone voice in the wilderness for school choice and vouchers. I will always remember her courage! and her laughter!

Condolence From: Angela Anderson
Condolence: Shawn, Barb and Art: I'm so sorry to hear of the Kay's passing. I admired Kay for her love of music and her desire to help others. One of my favorite memories growing up is our Christmas caroling at the old folks homes with Kay as our director. What joy she brought to those through music! May she rest in peace. My thoughts are with you and your family. Love, Angela

Condolence From: Joe Tinoco
Condolence: Sending prayers and love to Art and the whole family on their huge loss. Kay was so special to me and my family. Not only did she help me with vocal instruction and performance ability (she was a jack of all trades) but she also helped us as a family whenever needed. She was always there for anybody, when there was a need. A special lady, and a very special lifelong friend. You will be missed here on Earth, but we will celebrate with you again Kay, up in the party in the sky! God Bless. Don't get into any trouble with my Mom up there, ya hear!!
