Our deepest sympathy to all of you at this difficult time. Betty , Kay and Mae were such good friends and had so many happy memories of their lives in Port Wallace. There was always so much laughter when the 3 of them were together and we all had a great time and many laughs in the choir together. Mom and Kay had a great visit a few years ago when Mom was last able to travel here and they had talked on the phone since then. We all send you our thoughts prayers memories and hugs. Betty Gardiner, Barb , Karl and family

Gerald , Alaine and Crowell family. My condolences. I met Gerald On Canada Day 1980 and Kaye very shortly after. As was the custom then , you always referred to the parents of your friends as Mr. or Mrs...... Kaye would have none of it. I tried but to no avail.......subsequently Kaye was the only "parent" i ever called by their first name......a very special status and an indication of her character. A friend always. Visited Kaye many times over the years and enjoyed every second. Farewell friend. Mark Martin

I remember meeting a Kay when I first came to sport Wallis Church she was friendly and welcoming. Over the years she was the face and organizer of the FOOD program from Port Wallis Church and provided us with updates on this important outreach program. She was a wonderful lady interested in her church family and always had a smile. At this difficult time I hope it helps to know we are tempering you're family in prayer. Lillian and Jim Smithson

To the Crowell family, My deepest condolences on the loss of you mother. I also grew up on the Waverley Rd. and went to school with Gerald. We were also members of Port Wallis United Church and your mom and my mom, Sandra Wood, became good friends. Kay was alway there if mom was ill or needed and ear. They shared many memories through the church. Having just lost our mom in February, I know the heartache you must have. May your Mom rest in Peace. - Denise (Wood) Corkum

Kay was a beloved member of Port Wallis United Church and will be greatly missed. I had the opportunity to have some special chats with her during her stay at the Dartmouth General Hospital as my father was on the same floor. I will always treasure those conversations. She was a strong woman with a warm heart and valued her connections with others. Kay will always hold a special place in my memories. Love and comfort from our church family to your family on your great loss.
