I had the pleasure of working with Faye at FleetFinance Center . She was what she preached , had a spiritual character and soul. She is definitely amongst the angels. Love to all her family.

Larry and Family, I am sorry that I never got to meet your Faye....she sounds like a wonderful human being. May God grant you and your family peace and comfort as you heal from your loss. Odds are good that Faye is already serving people in her new home.

I will always remember Faye's bigger than life personality in high school and later in life as I reconnected with her at school reunions. She lit up a room when she appeared. I will truly miss her but I know she is in eternal rest and peace with the Lord.
