Kathy Lay, 19?? - 2007


I am absolutely stunned to learn that a friend of mine has passed away from ovarian cancer. Rest in Peace, Kat, or create as much havoc and fun as you can where you are!

Sorry to hear of the loss of a friend.

How did you know Kat? Tell us about it...

Yeah, please! Tell us about her.

Kat & I met and worked together at Foxwoods casino- she was definitely the most fun person to work with. Marko & I used to hang out with her & her husband, Ernie, a lot, too. Oh, and we partied hard....

She was a big personality, incredibly generous, and she had a hell of an elephant collection!

And she always tried to make 'scrapple' for me, but I never, ever wanted to know what was in it, never mind eating it!

Unfortunately, they moved away here & there in the last two years, so there wasn't as much contact & I didn't even know she had cancer.

Ernie is also a very warm, generous person & they were definitely soulmates.

I suppose I should have written all of this in the blog!
