My dear Faye I know I should be rejoicing that you are with The Good Lord and I am but it still hurts a lot, I Thank God all of my dear friends and family who have been there for me, Thanks for my sister Santos for being able to come over the same day to comfort me, Having had a heart attack just 2 years ago I REALLY didn't think I could survive that night. I want to also thank all the wonderful people who took good care of my Faye, All my friends for checking on me, Please keep in your prayers so I can get strength from The Good Lord,

My sweet Aunt Faye did not have any children of her own, but she loved all of her nieces and nephews like they were her own. She quilted for us, sewed for us, painted for us, and sent us little things "just because." Her thoughts were always about what she could do for someone else. Even when she became really ill, she never complained about the constant pain that accompanied her illness; she only wanted to know, "So tell me what's going on in your life?" Through the years we shared many laughs, music, many deep thoughts, and also tears during the difficult times in our lives and family. No matter what, she loved us.

Her loss has left a huge hole in my heart and in our family that we will try to fill with good memories and her love for us.

Heaven has gained another angel.

Love you, Faye.

Your loving niece,
