There was a room full of love and celebration, and also of deep sadness, but with constant reminders that a woman who was no longer with us lived a life of great joy, passion and accomplishment.
Kay had a deep love of music and a phenomenal sense of humor and the ridiculous. So one of the things we chose to do at her service was a kazoo sing-a-long to an old-time folk tune of which she was particularly fond. (Yes, I am the grammarian about whom your mother warned you.)
Clicking the image will take you to a YouTube video of the people gathered to celebrate Kay’s life, giving voice to their love of her….on kazoos.
The video is about five minutes long, but I won’t be bothered if you fast-forward to the kazoo part (plus, like I’m gonna know?) And as an extra bonus, you get to hear me talk. Cause I know you’ve all been dying for that.
Thank you to all who shared support, comfort, thoughts of love for Kay and Sarah and their family, who joked with me on twitter when I couldn’t find the damned kazoos, who checked in, who shared Kay’s story, who bought red underwear.
