To my sister-in-law, Linda Leathers and family, I remember meeting Kaye for the first time at my Mom and Dad’s. Linda, you brought her with you to visit. Kaye and I talked and laughed and laughed. I thought she was the greatest and most fun !! I am so sorry for your loss. God give comfort and strength to her family. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
