Kaye I will miss you terribly. All the years we worked together you were my second mom always being protective and giving great advice when I needed it. You were a great friend who always called me every Christmas Eve without fail.
Miss you, Love you,

Kay was a great friend to my family; I will always remember her fondly, and miss her wit, wisdom, and vivacity. Her generous spirit was a childhood influence that grew into an adult friendship. I am sorry for your loss. A donation to Because I am a Girl has been made in her memory.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to you; Susan, Mark and your families. I have known your mom my entire life; as a best friend to my mom, as my Aunt Kaye, and as someone who brought laughter and love to my dad. Our family will miss spending time with her. Kaye was a very loving, thoughtful lady who will be greatly missed....Love, Chris, Doug and Jordan Dick

Susan and Juri
We will certainly miss Kaye on our Drayton trips and her help with Fran. So far no luck with tickets, but, by chance, found a lady at the Commons who will look around for us. I expect will end up giving them back to you and love to have you along if you so wish.
We wont be able to attend the funeral, but we have enjoyed her friendship and want to express our condolences. We did make a donation to Speroway (Google it) which was the only children charity on our list.
Sincerely, Ken and Joyce

How many memories from our childhood surface when thinking of your mom. She was a kind and very special lady. She has lived a long and caring life and has positively affected many. We 3 kids could always count on her to be there should we need some help in any way. I will always remember our talks while sitting on the front step.
Love, Chris Forsyth (nee Moore)
