    I am sad to hear of Kay’s passing. In the past, Kay and I worked together at Angel Watch. Kay was an inspiration, and always gave 100% to those in her care. Kay often talked about her family, dogs, and her beloved Atlanta Braves.
    I fondly remember Kay scheduling her work hours around the Atlanta Braves schedule. My condolences to the Bozeman family.
    Rest In Peace Kay
