Julia Faye and JP were such good neighbors to my parents, JG and Bernice Babb. JP and Dad were friends from a young age and they were happy to retire close to them. Julia Faye and Mom were later both widows there. Wonderful memories of Julia Faye and JP as very kind and caring people.

Julia Faye was a kind and thoughtful person. She was always thinking of others with visits, food and prayers. She and JP were such good friends to my parents, Pete and Gladys Qualls. I have wonderful memories.
