I worked at Yard Birds when Fay was there, although my last name back then was Brown. The thing I remember most about her was she was a tough boss and so many people wanted to work under her. If you had the desire to learn from the best, then you wanted to work for Fay. She also treated the employees like family. The one thing that I will remember most about this wonderful lady is her unforgettable smile. That smile lit up the room the moment she would walk in. The only thing I can say about her is WOW, what a lady. To the family, I am so sorry for your loss. You are in my prayers. Sincerely, Pam Brown Craddock.
