Condolence & Memory Journal

Mrs Enck was such a cherished teacher. I thought of her last week when I was at a school event and they were talking about teachers that made an impact on your life. Ms Enck Certainly did that. She formed connections with her student like no other teachers. I am so grateful for my connection to her. She will be deeply missed

So sorry to hear about the loss of Kay, my childhood friend. We had great times st St. Michael's school in Findlay, Ohio. I remember fun times with Kay in Campfire girls, sleep overs and our school antics especially playing with her many pop bead necklaces and bracelets which of course drive the teachers crazy when they fell on the floor. LOL. Poo beads were the rage and Kay was always with the style. My sincere condolences to her family and friends and her pets which she dear,y loved. God Bless you Kay until we meet again.

Kay and I met because of our love
for dogs. Met at the Wild Birdseed Store when she ask if I could carry a large bag of seed out for her, since she
had to walk her dog Mattie out. Of course I said yes and then she found out I was a dog trainer with a facility 5 mins from her house. Ask if she could bring her dog to a class. And the rest is history. We spent every Thanksgiving together from then on. She'd pick the place, I'd drive, we'd eat,come back and watch Football ,. She loved the Falcons and Braves. But above all she loved her dogs. I was lucky enough to have shared 3 German Shepherds with her and she could never correct any of them...only spoil and love them. And oh how they LOVED HER❤. You may be gone but the MEMORIES will live on☺

You may be gone Kay, but you will never be forgotten. I feel sadness in my heart every time I pass your house, but find comfort in knowing you are finally at peace. Spicers Lane will never be the same
