I have so many memories of this beautiful lady and her family, my Aunt Faye, my Daddy’s baby sister. So many dinners, so many visits and fishing up at Silver Lake. So many holidays. So many summer nights making homemade ice cream. I can’t name them all, but we enjoyed every one of them. As much as we loved her and will miss her, she is with Our Lord and many others who have gone before us and who are celebrating her arrival in Heaven. RIP Aunt Faye.❤️

Love my sweet sister-in-law. She was beautiful inside and out. She loved her Lord and her family, was always thoughtful, kind and generous. She will be greatly missed but leaves behind a remarkable legacy in the wonderful Christian family she raised. I will cherish my precious memories of her and her sweet smile.
