    Dear Margo and Family, What a beautiful service for our dear Kaye. Your mom made an impact on 3 generations in my family. She always sent wonderful cards to my grandmother, “To the Beautiful Iva”! And my mother cherished you both and loved to visit! We are very blessed to have known Kaye and know her presence will always be with you. Love, Piper and Jeff
