    Fabulous pedicure, yummy pink martini, and beautiful friends and family, Kim.

    I love the typewriter with its changeable book title. You could, you know. You could father all that you’ve written for and about Kay, thus far, into a book, and sell it. The proceeds could go to a women’s shelter, or something similar that would honor Kay.
