Fay was such a wonderful person. I always looked forward to, and enjoyed, our trips to Memphis to see her and her family.
Her and Gene were some of my mother Jessie and father Rance's dearest and most treasured friends.
I always had fun hanging out with her sons Paul, Patrick, and Christopher.
Rest in Peace Fay and enjoy seeing Gene again!
