Dear Faye, I remember your whole family from so many years ago when we went to church together at Clayton Advent Christian Church...sweeter times then...but a solid foundation to help deal with this old world...your mama was a sweet, soft spoken lady who went along in a quiet way...I remember when my youngest sister was born, your mama was the first person to come see her at home...I knew her to be a woman of faith...precious memories...and prayers of comfort and peace for you and your family...Shiela (Gore) Powell...

I only met you once but fell in love with your sweet spirit. You reminded me of my own grandmother who passed away many years ago. I only know Faye and Alex and they are sweet and were blessed to have had you in their lives for as long as they did. I know you will be missed by them and the rest of your family. But now you are flying with the angels. Nothing could be better.
