Dear Doyle family,
I am so sorry to hear about Kaye. I have great memories of laughing with her and teasing her (and her teasing me!) while growing up. Amy and John, we had great times and probably made your mom crazy! I wish I could be in Oelwein and see you. We were out of town until Sunday evening and unfortunately I can't get away from work for the funeral. Please know I'll be thinking of all of you. One can only imagine the reunion in heaven!

My Aunt Kaye was an amazing woman who gave all of her love to her family. Anytime we were with her we felt special.
She was loved and adored by many and will be forever missed.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the family during this time. We were blessed to get to spend some time with Zia Caterina while she was in Des Moines. She will be missed.

Our love
