Thoughts & Prayers
Well known to, respected and with a positive impact on many, many of us, Kay always carried an incredibly enthusiastic outlook wherever she went and to all with whom she dealt. And she always had a bubbly smile and kind word for everyone. For those of us regional trainers whom she helped better understand the rating process, especially as new automated systems were being implemented in the Field, that smile and kindness went an awfully long way in helping us better understand and appreciate the process. I last spoke with Kay a few months ago and she had both of us laughing as she explained how she was determined to continue navigating her walker along the very cracked sidewalks of her street … not too hard to imagine that determination knowing that she was also well known for roller-skating to work across the Brooklyn Bridge during the New York City Transit Strike of 1966. Kay was definitely always one of the truly good guys and a good friend … and her family's loss is shared by all whose lives she touched in both the Field and Home Office.
During this difficult time, we know Kay's family would really appreciate our keeping them in our thoughts and prayers.
