Kaki (to her grandkids Kaddy) was a very loving and caring woman. She would go out of her way to help everyone and anyone that needed help. She loved to sew, crochet, cook, write poems and she was one of the best caregivers around. She was a fighter, and to say the least, she fought to the very end. She loved her grandkids so much, they were her world, and when she got sick and couldn’t do for them anymore it broke her heart. She had a wild side also. Her sisters and niece could close down the bars dancing. All the younger guys loved to dance with her. Her niece Tammy would get so mad, in her words “it was humiliating”. Tammy was cute, but Kaki was so charismatic that Tammy would not stand a chance. Kaki was for sure the life of everything she did. Her nephew Jim said one time that Kaki was where he learned to cuss, because she had a mouth like a sailor. These are just a few of the memories we have of her. (Carolyn)
