  1. Kay Murrell will be sadly missed by our whole family. When we made it to San Antonio we went by to visit or she would meet us at Paul and Nell’s. She spent some weekends with the Boudreaux’s in Franklin,LA during her College days at USL. May God keep her in his care until we meet in heaven. Robin and Kathy Boudreaux.

  2. May the family find comfort in the words recorded at Psalm 46:1. It says: “God is our refuge and strength, a help that is readily found in times of distress.

  3. Kay was so special to me and The Assistance League. A wonderful friend, She was such a good carin and loving person. She was the best to share a laugh with and just be with. May you Rest In Peace my friend….
