Lynn, I am so sorry to hear about your loss. Faye was a wonderful person. She was always friendly, and always had words of encouragement for everyone! May God richly bless you and your family!

Lynn and Faye were a constant during my early career at NC State. They opened the hearts, their home and their grace to this young staffer. Faye was a constant supporter and always kind to share her husband with his alma mater. Although I have not seen her in many years, I will never forget her warm smile and friendship.

Our sincere condolences to you, Lynn. Through all the hardships of Faye's extended sufferings you have remained solid, faithful and loving. You are admired, and we pray for your continued strength each day. Jim and I fondly recall some 57 years ago when we came by your home in Raleigh for a brief visit to adhere to the UNC-G (WC) restriction that as a female student I had to have a firm address for my destination to NC State for its Homecoming game. You and Faye welcomed us into your home...after which we went on to the game and festivities knowing that we had dutifully complied. Thank you and Faye for your kindness (my 1st football game). God bless you and your family.

Elaine and I are saddened by Faye's passing. She fought a long battle as well as Lynn. Ray meant a great deal to us, especially Elaine, when we retired back to North Carolina and NC State 20 years ago. God bless, Bob Kennel
