Kay, Thank you for teaching me so many things about life. I am so grateful for our times together working with the Advocacy Coalition to help people with disabilities access good transportation. You helped me understand the need for and the joy of implementing the Americans with Disabilities Act. More importantly, I enjoyed our many conversations and sharing stories about our families, friends, and vacations. You have been an inspiration for me, and I wish you peace. Chuck Kamp

I learned a lot from Kay... I will always remember Kay as a wonderful lady and a patient teacher. Whereas I am sad for me that Kay has gone home, I am very happy for her that she is with the Lord and free of pain at last.

I was sad to hear of Kay's earthly passing. As children on Lorain Court Kay and I along with our sisters would play endless hours of Canasta together and do a lot of visiting! She was indeed a joy and upbeat friend. I am privileged to have known her and to be able to call her friend. Such a blessing it is to know that we will meet together someday in our Lord's presence! May God hold her family and friends closely in the palm of His hand and comfort them as only He can. Blessed be the memory of Kay Keller.

I will always treasure the many conversations and hours spent playing games with Kay.I started out as a care giver but we became very close friends.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

I first met Kay when she started working at the Y. I worked there too and we became friends. Over the years, we shared many laughs and many games of Canasta. She usually won. I cherish those memories. Thanks Kay!

Kay wasa very special woman. Her faith in the Lord was so inspiring and exemplary. Her heart was always on fire for Jesus. I just know that when she celebrates her 72nd birthday, she will be at the big banquet table laughing and enjoying all the wonderful food and then will be dancing around the table after the meal. She will never be forgotten. Sincerely, Mary and Tim O'Brien
