Kay Yow speaks at her own funeral

Just watch these two videos in their entirety:


The first is a video Yow made several weeks ago for the purposes of being read at her own funeral. In it, she describes the importance of Christianity in her life, and reads a poem she wrote that was inspired by her faith.

Equally moving is the video immediately following – a tribute to Yow that includes lots of footage from times past. It reminds us all of the place she had in building up the women’s game to where it is today, and how strong she was throughout her battle with cancer; truly inspirational.

Great piece in today’s Charlotte Observer:


May Coach Yow’s legacy live on.
