As her younger cousin, I saw a faithful wife and mama. She reminded me of Uncle Bub's smirk but had Aunt Maggie's gentleness. I was impressed with her sweet family. I loved how Faye would check on my mom, Aunt Joy, and be a sweet sister-friend as often as she was able. Love and prayers to dear Tom, family, Wanda and Tolley.

My memories of Tom and Fay from my childhood until now are ones of love and laughter and showing everyone they met just how much God loves us all. A real Lady, Fay was always ready to serve and help in any way. She loved the church and people in general and was always smiling. My life as a Christian wife and mother was definitely guided by this sweet sister.

Granny had my cousins and I make a box from a kit purchased at hobby lobby. I remember Mark and myself particularly dreading the tedious work of sanding down the wood, applying several coats of stain, and finally engraving “Tye’s Box” on the front of it. I had absolutely know idea what i would use this box for, it was only big enough for a dozen hot wheels. Granny told me that i would thank her one day. That box now belongs to my wife, where she has saved letters, photos, concert and plane tickets, and even receipts from fond memories together over the years. All that to say Granny was always right and I will miss her dearly. Also, thank you granny!

Granny was a feisty and fun woman, who always knew how to pry a smile from you on your darkest day. Her legacy will be one of wisdom, strength, and devotion to her Lord and her family, and I know these things will live on in our home as we raise her great grandson. I am so thankful she is at home with the Lord!

Such a dear Cousin - always welcomed me into her lovely home. I remember visiting as a teen with Brenda (Smith Skamfer). She had little ones around. What struck me was her gracious, quiet spirit. Gentle. Faithful. Faye's gift of hospitality was exceptional. Her love for family and the Lord made such an impression on me. I love her dearly and thank God for His rich blessing through her life.
