I never met Kathy in person, but she handled our company's account so I communicated almost daily with her for the last several years. She was always very professional and responsive, but also very light-hearted and funny. We talked a few times on the phone, but it was mostly emails, and very often I would hear myself laughing out loud whenever she threw one of her funny lines in her emails. When I learned of her passing, it really troubled me, and it hit me that she wasn't just a professional contact, she had also become a friend. I will miss her very much. I also always enjoyed hearing about her concert trips. My prayers go out to all of her family, co-workers, and friends. Rest in peace, Kathy.

I really enjoyed working with Kathy. She had such a lively and young spirit. Thank you for helping me rediscover the music I grew up with....
My sincere condolences to the Daye family and all who knew and loved her. RIP Kathy and God bless!
