Kaye is missed already. Kaye has treated me and family very well over the years. When I lost her cousin Butch 4 years ago Kaye helped me get through the pain. Kaye is caring, loving and a force to be recon with if you get on the wrong side of her. As I look around my condo I see her contributions so she will always stay in my heart. I spent the last week with Georgia and Dora Heather caring for her during her last days. We cared for Kaye the way she cared for others. Kaye is with Aunt Mary and Butch in a better place now . RIP until we meet again Love you Always cousin Janet

I first met Kay at of all places girl scout camp 50 years ago!!! Many years later our paths crossed again as she was the "voice" of the IVH switchboard when I called!!! She hadn't changed a bit and I recognized her voice right away!!! Its funny how people pass through our lives but there are some who seem to touch our hearts forever....she was one of those. Eternal rest and peace to her in God's kingdom. My sympathy to the family.
