Remembering Kay Mackey, LID Vice President

We lost a member of our LID family last night.  Kay Mackey, Vice President, and long-time board member lost her battle with ovarian cancer.  She was an advocate, leader, activist, lawyer, friend, progressive, proud lesbian, and all around decent human being.  There are many wonderful things that one can say about Kay, and I hope her spirit lives on in all of us who were fortunate to know her.  Below is a touching tribute her wife Jess posted:

"A special light in the world was extinguished last night. Kay was an amazing friend and my wife. She loved her family and her friends with a heart too big to be contained in this world.

Look around you to your family and friends and remember how much they mean to you and how you are blessed to have them in your life. You are a better person for being loved.

Go out and do a good deed. Make the world a better place because you are here. Look at shapes in the clouds and smile. And live your life to the fullest. It’s what Kay did."

Below are the arrangements that Jess and her family have made.
