    Our hearts and prayers go out to Mike and Evan at the departure of our dear Kaye!
    Words can never say enough of our indebtedness to Kaye for being instrumental in the adoption of our daughter,, Kara , in 1981. God used Kaye to change our world forever through our daughter!!!
    Kaye has now reaped her eternal reward from her Heavenly Father and is standing in awe of that amazing place that God has created for His children!!
    Mike, we know that the temporary separation will be tough, but will not be long!!! Some day, in a not too distant future we all will be together with Kaye, rejoicing in the presence of our Lord and Savior!!! What a Grand Day that will be!!!!
    Mike, - we love you with the Love of Christ!!

    Kaye Was one of the most talented Piano players that I have ever had the pleasure of working with. She accompanied me a few times as i sang a solo in the morning service and followed me as I sped up and slowed down. She and Mike came to visit me when I was in the Hospital and it made me feel so good she was with Mike. She will be missed we loved her for her kind heart and talent. Brother Mike may the Good lord comfort you during this time. Bob And Joyce Clune
