    Dear cousins~Sending our sincerest condolences to you all…Kay’s family… in the loss of your wife, mom, and grandma. Kay and my mother were first cousins. I have so many memories of happy times spent with her family when growing up. My Grandfather was a brother to her Mom. And my Grandmother and Auntie were also best friends…she even introduced my grandparents to each other right before WWI! Kay was my godmother at my Christening! We have always held a special place in our hearts for cousin Kay and her family. Our love to you at this sad time. Our prayers for your comfort surround you. -Steph, Jim Langston & Family.
