Good memories of time spent in the Kay home. Prayers for comfort at this hard time. Special memories of a trip to Wichita Falls for YMCA state basketball tournament (dust storm and all) and trips to the Long Horn relays in Austin. Love you all!!

Norma, I was so sorry to hear of Bill's death. I have so many wonderful, loving memories of you and your family. I will never forget a time in my life that you came to the teacher's lounge at Robinson High and put your arms around me and said everything would be okay. I pray that God will put His arms around you right now and give you strength--that you will strongly feel His presence holding you. Please know that Jim and I are praying for you and your family, and know that we love you guys.
Jody and Jim Butler
