    I am so severly saddened by Kay's death. She was a very good friend of mine when she live in PA. No words can describe what I am feeling right now. She was a wonderful person and her family are also. May God be with her family.

    Thank you to all who have prayed and who are still praying for my aunt's family in Georgia and in Connellsville; also thank you to those who have sent condolences over this tragic loss. It sickens me as well as the rest of the family that someone can be so evil to take a life! If anyone knows anything; doesn't matter how small of a detail it may be; please come forward if you know anything! PLEASE DON'T LET THESE SICK ANIMAL/S GET AWAY WITH THIS They took a precious life away from our family and now all we have left is our memories of her. We need to get justice for her and for our family!!

    It took my breath away when I found out that she died this afternoon. I cannot imagine what her family is going through at this time. My prayers are with her family and friends, and especially her child(ren). The only thing that we can do at this time is pray and have trust in God and those who are working on this case that they will bring this worthless piece of !#@$ to justice! God Bless the family at this most difficult time.

    This is a shame, A good person had to die so a crook can steal. I too would love to get my hands on this worthless thug... My heart and prayers go out to the family.
