I am so sorry to see my neighborhood Mama has passed away. We had some great conversations over the last 25 years sitting at her round table in the dining room. I had such great respect and love for both her and Jimmy. It hurt my heart to see her strength fade away after Jimmy passed. May they both reunite in the heavenly fathers house.

My thoughts and prayers go out to Tammy and Mike on the lose of their mother and also to the rest of the family. May GOD wrap his arms around you and comfort you all during this difficult time. I use to go spend many of nights at their house and Faye always treated me like one of her own, she was a sweet and caring woman. I am so sorry for your temporary separation but know you all will see her again someday. She will always be with you in her thoughts and in your heart and she will always be watching over you all. Faye will be missed and loved by all that knew her. REST IN PEACE FAYE.
