  1. Evil , cold hearted and calculated. She deserves everything she gets. Should be the death penalty. What kind of evil person does this to their parents? Sickening

  2. I knew the father from work for many years before his retirement. A wonderful and kind man. I am stunned and saddened

  3. I think Her boyfriend was involved in this cause he is a low life with no future … look at him first ..

  4. I knew the mother from working with her for 20+ years. Both were good, upstanding people. Kay (as we knew her) was a kind and loving person as well as an excellent cook. They helped to raise their grandsons. I spoke with her the week before about their retirement. Such a terrible loss of dear friends and to the community.
    My condolences to the families.
