Love my Mamaw Faye. She had this mysterious smile that was worth a thousand words. She was so very skilled. I will always cherish the quilt she made for me. I may never meet her match when it comes to homemade chicken and dumplings. And her homemade salad dressing... and her beef and noodles. Such an amazing cook. She will be missed. ❤️
