My memories of Aunt Faye are all happy. She cared for her dogs with great love. She shared my brother Guy's enthusiasm for Nascar. Political opinions, aplenty - yet she didn't preach. She impressed me by learning to use a computer and access the Internet - in her 70's. It seemed to me, that she approached most of life with a sense of humor and in her own style. Rest in peace Aunt Faye.
