I am so sorry for your loss. Sending prayers for the family. Your mom was a wonderful person and we were close to the same age so when I married her cousin Paul we had a lot in common and became friends. Over the years we moved but we still kept up with one another. If any of you are ever in Macon would love to see you. Give your Dad a hug from me. Love from the Slappey family.

Sorry to hear of Faye's passing. I wish I could be at visitation.

I first met Faye at Tyndall AFB before you two were married, again at Maxwell AFB and again at a local mall in Cobb.
