A Tribute to Katy


One Flaw In Women

Women have strengths that amaze men.

They bear hardships and they carry burdens, but they hold happiness, love and joy.

They smile when they want to scream.

They sing when they want to cry.

They cry when they are happy and laugh when they are nervous.

They fight for what they believe in.

They stand up to injustice.

They don't take "no" for an answer when they believe there is a better solution.

They go without so their family can have.

They go to the doctor with a frightened friend.

They love unconditionally.

They cry when their children excel and cheer when their friends get awards.

They are happy when they hear about a birth or a wedding.

Their hearts break when a friend dies.

They grieve at the loss of a family member, yet they are strong when they think there is no strength left.

They know that a hug and a kiss can heal a broken heart. Women come in all shapes, sizes and colors.

They'll drive, fly, walk, run or e-mail you to show how much they care about you.

The heart of a woman is what makes the world keep turning.

They bring joy, hope and love.

They have compassion and ideas.

They give moral support to their family and friends.

Women have vital things to say and everything to give.





 For the gladness then when the apartment was filled with laughter and song,

     Our prayer of thanks.

For the shinning eyes and smiling faces one to another in a room filled with time,

     Our prayer of thanks.

For the warmth of our humor and the grip of hands to our sides and another’s arms and elbows,    

     Our prayer of thanks.

For the chance to share a dinner and the moans and groans of just how good it all was,

     Our prayer of thanks.

For the one who first stepped forward and said “What great friends and good-bye for now”,

     Our prayer of thanks.



Thank you Katy for allowing us the privilege of knowing and loving you!

Kaye Helen Hursley, 68, passed away Monday, Jan. 16, 2006, at her residence in Lakeside.

She was born May 11, 1937, at Manistee, Mich., the daughter of Rex and Fern (Holmes) Anderson.

She started spreading love the day she was born and never stopped. Her transition won't hinder her in any way. She possessed wisdom you won't find in books. Her greatest gift was her ability to meet a stranger and within five minutes, plant the seeds in them to bring forth their own greatness. What a way to change the world. Indeed she has. Her seeds are many.

She was preceded in death by her parents; a daughter, Leane Haskee; and a brother, Bill Anderson.

She is survived by her other half of one soul, James Hursley, of Lakeside; two sons, Bret Haewski of Commerce Township, Mich., and Bill Haskee of Royal Oak, Mich.

There are no services planned at this time for Kaye.

The family requests that any memorial contributions be sent to the Kaye Haewski Hursley Memorial Fund, 427 Devillen Ave., Royal Oak, MI 48073.

Johnson Mortuary and Crematory is caring for Kaye's family.
