I thought of all the yesterdays,
The good ones and the bad,
I thought of all the love we shared,
And all the fun we had.
If I could relive yesterday,
Just even for a while,
I'd say good-bye and kiss you
And maybe see you smile. (Author Unknown)

The Mrs. Ohio Pageant family sends our love and prayers

On August 12th her loving husband Doug
lost his battle with ALS at the very young age of 37.

Cay Stout – Mrs. Toledo is Mrs Ohio 2006

Independant Life Begins At Home

“It’s not the years in your life that count.
It’s the life in your years.”
- Abraham Lincoln

As Mrs. Ohio 2006 I will use
my skills, passion and commitment
to advocate for and promote
independant living services
by publicizing the success of these programs that create dignity
rather than dependance.

On The Hill - May 2006

"On behalf of the American people, please let me congratulate Mrs. Ohio, Cay Stout, for bringing nobleness to her crown by promoting Independent Living Centers across Ohio. She has experienced first hand the difference the support of an Ability Center can make on families living with physical challenges. With her personal experience and thus, personal witness, she holds the real power to inspire others to live lives that are fuller and more abundant, for themselves and others.

Like the statue of the Woman of Freedom atop our U.S. Capitol dome, who faces east toward the rising sun, Mrs. Ohio is pointing the way to expanded liberty for our families and loved ones. We congratulate Cay, a daughter of our Buckeye state, whose motto is "With God, all things are possible". I believe this aptly captures her journey forward for America's families."

Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur

On The Hill - May 2006

Independent Living describes the preferred way of life for persons with disabilities. It focuses on individuals with disabilities having control over the supports and services they need to live day to day. It means that individuals are active participants in there communities, and live in homes not nursing homes.

The Independent Living way of life requires individuals, organizations, and government to change their attitudes about the role of people with disabilities in a free society. We are truly blessed to have Mrs. Ohio , Cay Stout, select Independent Living as her platform. Her personal experience in having a family member with a disability, makes her an outstanding spokesperson for the independent living movement.

—Tim Harrington, Executive Director
The Ability Center of Greater Toledo
