Kaye loved her family. She loved spending hours in the sunshine with her flowers. She had a passion for animals. She was creative and enjoyed making cards. She loved riding her motorcycle,  going to church, traveling the world and especially enjoyed just generally being extraordinary. Kaye had a smile that brightened the room. She was a fighter, never complained and was grateful for everyday.
