Dean,
As we all know, sharing memories becomes
more important as the years go by. My best memory of your father was how gracious a gentleman and host he was on
my FICPA visit to Pensacola almost 30 years ago now. My thoughts are with you at this special "pause" in your life.

Dennison Family,
I want to thank your family and Fayette for the goodness and greatness that Fayette brought to this world. Fayette has to be admired for what many of us failed to do. Again, thanks.

To All the Dennison Family:
For many years I had the pleasure of working at Fayette's CPA firm downtown.
That was a long time ago, but the pleasant times are never forgotten. Fayette had the talent of throwing you a joke...and you realized it after he had continued on down the hallway. Funny guy. I remember him engaging in verbal jousting matches with our computer programmers. Funny, he loved to do that...smart guy.
A true Gentleman. Fondly remembered.
My deepest sympathy.

We have wonderful memories of our Sunday golf games and Hawaii vacation trip with Jewel and Faye. It is hard to say goodbye to them.

Dear Kathy, Dana and Dean,
I won't be able to be there in person, but I will be with you in spirit this afternoon, to cry with you, at the memorial for your dad -- thanks to a bad case of bronchitis.
Among the things I could count on in our Seville subdivision was seeing your dad as we passed in our vehicles, which is, sadly, the only time most of us see or have seen each other over the years because of varying schedules, and knowing he would wave. Of course, I'd wave back. We've now lost him and Warren Briggs from our Villafane/Seville circle within the last three months and it's just not going to be the same.
You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

Dean, Dana, and Kathy,
Very sorry for your (and our) loss. Uncle Faye was without a doubt an exceptional man, father, and husband. Uncle Faye will be sorely missed by all of us. Keep the faith and keep the love as we all will remember him.

Fayette was a dear friend and a pillar of wisdom, guidance and inspiration for our Gadsden Stret United Methodist Church. We fondly remember the good times with Faye and Jewel in the Couples class.
