    My heart felt condolences! Kae was someone special indeed. I was blessed to have so many interactions with her through the many years we had “the birthday girls” together. I was always thankful that she was a dear friend to my mom, Bernice. The sun will no more be your light by day, nor will the brightness of the moon shine on you, for the Lord will be your everlasting light, and your God will be your glory. Your sun will never set again, and your moon will want no more; the Lord will be your everlasting light, and your days of sorrow will end. Isaiah 60
