Aunty Kay’s passing is leaving behind so many fond memories....visiting the farm at Christmas and eating until we rolled on the floor, the yummiest squares ever, washing the dishes with soap and water and THEN putting them in the dishwasher!  Aunty Kay was a very special lady!  Our hearts are with you at this time.
