I was always felt welcome as family in her home.

Breeze floats softly over the morn like an infants yawn
Ripples expand from the petal's kiss on the rain made shallows
May my memory be worthy of the name
for tomorrow will not be the same

Uncle Ron and family, I as others would like to add my condolences for your loss. I do understand what this feels like. I am confident and do pray that the Good Lord will bless you and your family at this time. I did enjoy the time I spent with her. Further, I am confident that she and Theresa have met and are now at peace.

I am sorry to learn of your loss. I have many fond memories of watching Faye walk around the neighborhood with her fighting spirit and beautiful smile. She was a joyful member of our women's Republican club. We will keep you and Faye in our family prayers.

My grandma was such as spunky, fun, loving, kindhearted, beautiful woman. I will miss her so much, especially when she called me the purple princess. She will always be with those she loved, including my Papa and mom. I will miss her everyday but I know she has been welcomed into God's kingdom. She is now my guardian angel. I love you grandma.

Miss Faye is the reason that at the age of six I decided to name my future child Faye. She was the coolest grandma any of my friends had ever had, and she treated me like her own. I loved her so much.
