So sorry for the loss of your Mother. She was a special lady that always talked about how good the Lord was to her especially the last few weeks. She was so happy and remembered that our birthdays were one day apart. She will be missed most of all by our daughter. They seemed to have a special bond.Our prayers and thoughts are with all the family at this time.

David, Randy, Les and Molly, sad in my heart for your loss. It's hard losing our loved ones. I am glad that Aunt Faye knew Jesus and now she is in His presence.
When I was a teenager, Aunt Faye told me to be sure that I put lots of cream on my skin to keep it young! I took her advice and will always be grateful for that advice! She was a feisty woman and I loved that!

I’m glad you are at peace and no longer in pain. To David, Les, Randy and Molly - love you guys. Thanks Molly for taking such good care of her. Vickie
