Dear Rose , Peter and Parr
We are thinking of you you send our deepest and most heartfelt condolences.
I felt as though I knew Kaye forever . She welcomed my husband and me to her home with open arms . Always time for a cup of tea and a visit . We spoke regularly on the phone from Vancouver. Cape Breton will never be the same for me . I am grateful to Kaye for sharing her famous butterscotch pie ,Cape Breton pork pie recipe. I know the secret ingredient. We will miss her .
Sincerely Diane and Grant Ayling

Beautiful, funny,lady, I will have a little chuckle every time I look at “Werthers Popcorn “she loved so much and the funny fact that she wasn’t sharing and eating it all herself.
RIP Fine Lady
