"To me, she will always be "Ma". I always was happy to see her at every show I worked. She always had a big hug and a kind word for me. She could lift you out of the dumps. My deepest sympathy. Steve Cain"

"So truly heartbroken. I always called Kay "Momma DeCero" because she always made me (and everyone else) feel like Family. She is hands down, the kindest, sweetest, and most sincere person I have ever met in the wrestling business. God apparently needed another Angel and he called back his most precious one. I give my sincerest condolences and sympathies from every single fiber of my being to The DeCero Family. While we mourn the fact that Momma DeCero is no longer on this journey with us, let's all remember the many years of joy and happiness that she brought to all of our lives as well as the fact that she is the purest example of what it means to be a good person. I may have only known her for 2 years and hadn't seen her in nearly 20 but she left a profound impression on me and she will be deeply missed. All of my hopes, all of my best, to The DeCero Family during this difficult time."

"Dear DeCero Family Death leaves one overwhelmingly powerless. Your mother was a very special Lady and a wonderful friend. I am grateful I had the opportunity to get to know her and am thankful for the fun times we had and the stories and memories she shared with me over the many miles. Even after WCPW we still kept in touch. The love Kay felt for her family was very strong. You could see it in her eyes and in her heart. She gave you each other. Hold on to that gift. God bless you during this difficult time. Our deepest sympathies to all of you. Love, Tracy and Francis"
