I remember going to the Wright house with Carol and Kelly and swimming with all the “little” kids. I was considered old—I was 15 or 16!! Fun times and fond memories💖💖💖. Love and prayers to all of you. Miss Fay was always very sweet to me and I never saw her that she was not beautiful—driving that white Mercedes! That is how I shall remember her.

Back when I worked at Environamics, Inc. I look forward to the visits she made to say "hello" to us all but most of all to see her daughter Carol who was there as well. I will never forget when I first met her, her smile and she hugged everyone so gently. I loved that when she did meet my husband Frank that she would love talking to him just to hear that New York accent. It was amazing how much she enjoyed interacting with him as my husband is a very quiet man but he enjoyed every minute of conversation with Fay. Rest in peace sweet Fay and enjoy all those smiles and conversations with our savior Jesus Christ. It was wonderful having you here on earth for 89 years. Love Sofia & Frank Renaud
