  • Dearest Kaye, when life gets to the point that the light seems to have left the end of the tunnel and seems never to be returning – your amazing home away from being homeless is exactly where I visit. The loving feel of peace helps rebuild a positive look at what truly is on offer in our world. Stopping just to smell the flowers and realise that one beautiful woman, wife, mummy, nanny – Kaye – has created what is her version of a fairy tale. Warm the heart and soul of any type of person. Thank you again – I think you know how much coming over for a regular visit means to me since it’s about the 10th or so… Feeling like the world still has some loving, caring people. Feeling positive again. Thanks.
