    John I'm so sorry for your loss. I'm not sure if you remember me. We met several times when Alice was sick and when she passed you gave me some of Snap's knives. I grew up next door to Mary Kaye. We played together a lot. She had a neat tent in her yard and a spare bedroom with an awesome train set up. And the biggest slide in the neighborhood. We also played with her rabbit and turtle. We were in each other's houses and yards everyday. She enjoyed playing doctor and Barbie dolls and we read Nancy Drew books and had Monopoly marathons.Her parents were friends with mine. Her mom had a Girl Scout troop. I was in a different troop, but when they went places I was often invited along. I remember getting to go to Freedomland NY with them and got to hear the Four Seasons play and got their autographs! MaryKaye and her parents were wonderful people. I have great memories of them. Again John you have my condolences. Judy Beebe Kessler

    Mary Kaye was a joy to be in the presence of while we attended high school together in this small NJ town. Her smile would light up the room and her enthusiasm for life was contagious. Heartfelt sympathy to her husband, John.

    I received notice of Mary Kaye's death from another friend in Millville. I remember her well from our time together in school and HOURS together in the Girl Scouts. So good to know that she had a rich life with a lifetime companion. Betsy Smith Eismeier, Quechee Vt and Austin Tx

    Mary Kaye was one of my earliest friends - way back in our little town in South Jersey. She was so full of energy and enthusiasms - always so good to be around. Wish I had known how to stay in touch all these years. I'm so sorry to hear of her passing. Nancy Goodwin McKinley
