Pansy was my very best friend growing up. She was very much like the sister, I did not have. Pansy was a kind, gentle and humble person who would do anything for you. We stayed in touch over the years, sharing our life stories. In my life, it was comforting to know that I could always reach out to her. Everyone should be so lucky to have a friend like Pansy Key. I know in my heart and soul that Pansy is celebrating her new life with our Heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ, our Savior.
