I certainly do remember Faye in school. Although I left school to go overseas in the Jr year I recalled her as being very sweet, quiet but studious. She was very smart and had a lovely personality.. I am sorry that I didn't see her at any of our early class reunions My sincerest sympathy to all the family. Your memories will be good!

You are in my prayers, Lee. Take comfort knowing she loved her baby boy and she’ll always be with you. Rejoice in the fact you’ll see her and your dad again. They’ll be watching over you until then. Love, Becky

You were the best mom that a Son could ever hope to have. I know that you are with Daddy again now and all the family and friends that went before you. You made sure that i was ready to carry on taking care of all the things that you and Daddy worked so hard to provide for me. You also made sure that i had taking care of our kitty family down to perfection before you left to be with The Lord and Daddy. I made you the promise that i would always take care of the kitties, critters and the home just as lovingly as you always did. You taught me well Mom. Thank you and I'll see you again one day. I love you, Mommie, Nighty Night.

Rest in Paradise with Uncle Bob.
