What an awesome and sweet lady. From my first time I heard her play the piano at First Assembly to taking piano lessons from her. She never changed. She truly showed the fruits of the spirit. Kay I have thought about you ever since my piano lessons to talking about you last week about your piano playing. Miss and love you!

My Deepest Sympathy. It really hurts to lose someone you dearly love in death. The sorrow, pain, and tears are so saddening. I am so sorry you are going through that. This is a difficult time, but the perfect time to lean on God, because God promises: " Do not be afraid, for I am with you. Do not be anxious, for I am your God. I will fortify you, yes, I will help you, I will really hold on to you with my right hand of righteousness." God also invites you to, "throw all your anxiety (your cares, your worries) on him because he cares for you." Isn't it comforting to know that God really cares for you, that God wants to and is waiting to help you, "to hold on to you with his right hand." I sincerely hope that these words give you the comfort, strength, and courage you need to make it through this difficult time. (Isaiah 41:10; 1 Peter 5:7)

To Bill, the children and family, We are so sad to receive the news of Kay's passing. Will never forget her love for God, for us and for music. What an inspiration she always was. We know that heaven received her with open arms, and I pray her gift of music will live on there. Please know you have our love and prayers. Susan and Wayne Trexler

William, I am so sorry for your loss. We go back a long way to where we were all in school at MPHS & graduated in 1955. We had a great time our junior & senior years. I remember Kay as a great & dear friend at school in chorus & many other things & we rode the same bus as we lived only 2 1/2 miles apart. May you all have the peace that only God can give in times like this. You all have my Deepest Sympathy! Kay Frances Stallings Trivette
