Kaden Layne, born February 11, 2009, was a happy and healthy 16-month old beautiful baby girl who was filled with smiles, giggles, and love.  Tragically, her life was cut way too short.  On the evening of July 10, 2010 her family's lives were changed forever when Kaden went to sleep and didn’t wake up.  The cause of her death is still unknown and has been classified as SUDC (Sudden Unexplained Death in Childhood).  Sadly, many families deal with the pain of losing a child.  No matter the reason or cause, a child's death leads to one consistent outcome for the families involved; unimaginable grief. 


Kaden's Cause

The United Talent Dancers (PAC) performed a special tribute dance, "Homesick," in honor of Kaden at their Spring Recital in May of 2011. Choreographed by Ashley Rickman and performed by Cassidy Beymer, Lyndsey Borders, Erika Freeman, Maggie Hayes, Catherine Spigelmyer, Rachel Wilhite, Jenna Lyon, Hannah Montgomery, Andee Duvall, Kenedi Drumheller, Tess Campbell, and Erika Goodman.
