    Rob,Landon and Logan,
    I have such good memories of Caye. We always laughed and talked about the family while I was doing her hair. Caye was one of the most gracious, prettiest, fun loving, young women I’ve known. We had a lot of fun and experiences at First Baptist. She loved her family so sweetly. One of the finest example of a godly woman. I always admired her. Please know our prayers are with your entire family. May the grace of God cover you and surround you during this sad time.

    To all of Ms Caye’s family, I’m so sorry for your loss. I meet her only a few times at kuzin kamp, but she was never forgotten. With so many there, names and faces got confusing sometimes. Not Caye. She was beautiful – inside and out. Then i got to hear Rob talk about when they were dating and what she meant to him thru the years. Amazing Love. God bless all of you as her new life begins with no pain or sorrow, only peace and joy in Jesus’ arms.

    Rob, Landon, Logan, & family!
    We have many cherished memories from the years of serving together at FBC, Old Hickory, with your family, and watching Landon and Logan growing up to be fine young men. It is with sincere regrets that your kind, thoughtful, and gracious wife and Mother, Caye, has now passed in this physical form after many years of suffering a terrible illness.
    It is with great faith & confidence that I believe that she is now at peace, resting in God’s presence, and smiling from Heaven while watching with great joy her faithful husband, grown sons, five grandchildren, extended family members,
    and many friends, celebrate her life over these present days. Her’s was a life well lived!
    May our God’s love give you peace and comfort during these difficult days.

    I have great memories of Mrs Caye and Bro Rob teaching my Church Training class on Sunday nights at First Baptist Old Hickory when I was a little boy 35 years ago. I also remember all the times she was the gracious hostess opening their home to her church family and others… as if it was your home as much as it was hers! Mrs Caye was such a kind, thoughtful, cheerful, caring, and beautiful woman of God. She loved the Lord, her family, and her church family WELL. I am one of many to say that I consider myself blessed by God that I knew her. For Bro Rob, Landon, Kelly, Logan and the rest of the Darnell family, our deepest thoughts and prayers are with you.
