Condolences to the Sykes family

by folkbum

I don't ever listen to him, and I don't ever agree with him, but this is a terrible thing to have happen:
Katherine B. Sykes, the 87-year-old mother of Milwaukee radio talk show host Charles Sykes, died in a fire at her Mequon condominium today, according to a statement issued this evening by WTMJ-AM 620.

The statement reads: "WTMJ's Charlie Sykes confirmed that his mother, Katherine B. Sykes, died in a fire at her home in Mequon this afternoon. She was 87 years old.

"Kay Sykes was a warm, intelligent, and generous woman who took great pride in her son's work as a writer and broadcaster. She delighted in her three grandchildren and was very proud of their academic, athletic, and artistic achievements. She loved books, music, and nature. She lived a full life, and her family and friends will deeply miss her.

"Charlie wishes to thank his listeners for their thoughts and prayers at this difficult time."
The Sykes family will be in our thoughts this evening.
