I am very thankful for the lifelong friendship Faith and I shared. All the memories we have shared throughout the years, starting with elementary school, I will cherish forever. I am going to miss all the fun times we have had during our 52 years together.

Anyone who met Faith would have to agree she was a very thoughtful, loving, caring and a wonderful person to be around. My Mother simply adored Faith and was proud of her accomplishments. Faith was dedicated to her marriage, family, friends and career.

Faith and I did get to enjoy doing a few things last year, just the two of us . On our first trip together, we went to Myrtle Beach SC to join her sisters for a camping trip. I think we had just as much fun driving to and from as we did while we were there! Next, was the Rolling Stones concert (44 years from our first Stones concert), we had a blast! Our last concert was going to see "38 Special" in November, just before Faith became ill. I was looking forward to starting another chapter in our lives, but guess that wasn't in the cards for us.

Faith was like a sister to me and I am so brokenhearted that she is no longer with us, but am comforted knowing she is in Heaven with her soulmate, Joe. RIP Faith.....until we meet again.

My sweet Aunt Faith......

There are so many things I have admired about you ever since I was a little girl. You were such a beautiful and wonderful person. I will remember all of us camping together when I was younger, that was always a lot of fun! The last time I saw you we were looking at photo albums and talking about good times! I will cherish the memories I have of you forever. Love you always!

" I will see you again,oh
This is not where it ends....."

"Beyond the door there's peace I'm sure
And I know there'll be no more tears in heaven..."

"I thought of you today, but that's nothing new. I thought about you yesterday and the days before that too. I think of you in silence, I often speak your name. All I have are memories and your picture in a frame. Your memory is a keepsake from which I'll never part. God has you in his arms, I have you in my heart."

It is hard to believe my sweet aunt is no longer here with us. I am forever thankful for the memories we made over the past couple of months. You will forever be loved and missed. Hugs to the rest of my family during this time.

An Anchor to our family you were...
The One who looked over us siblings
and loved each one as her own...
A Mentor we looked up to.
Life is forever changed as we knew it,
We will miss you dearly!

We Love You Faith Ann

Who knew this would be the last
outing we would make.
Wishing time could be turned back.

I was so sad to hear of Faith's passing. Having known Faith for almost all of my years in the rebar business, it came as shock to hear she is no longer with us. I know everyone that knew her at Owen Steel, SMI and CMC will greatly miss her. Her friendship and leadership with so many people means she will be fondly remembered and never forgotten. My condolences to her family and Faith, may you RIP.
