Dear Yoshi, The Memorial for Kay today was so very special just as he was.  He was such a gentle person and brought those special qualities to our lip reading and signing classes. He had the most beautiful smile.
Love and prayers, kittye ryczkowski

Kay's memorial service was the most beautiful I have ever seen. Your family reflected Kay's kindness, intelligence and humbleness. A key takeaway for me was the quote to "Choose kindness over hate and anger."  Our prayers are with you, as you start a phase in your life without Kay's physical presence
