Faye was a great lady and wonderful mother in law to my son Jimmy. She personified what a Christian should be and will be missed by so many. Thank you Faye for being a part of my life and for your quick and funny wit. You always had a twinkle in those eyes and I am sure Isabell ran to meet you at those golden gates.
