Faye dedicated a great deal of time and energy to Smile Stitchers, an outreach ministry, creating countless finger puppets for the patients of Children’s Medical Center of Dallas.

Mrs. Thompson holds a special place in my heart. While I was in grade school, she and Mr. Thompson would invite me and my siblings to First Baptist Church of Richardson on Sundays. They made many invitations to pick us up to go. When I accepted Jesus as my Lord & Savior at the age of 17, she was there on my special day of baptism. She was there to celebrate my conversion when my family could not attend. I appreciate her so much for being there for me. I really felt love from her.
She had always made it known that she wanted all of us Trans to be saved. I believe God answered her prayers for us to have a personal relationship with Father God through the salvation of Jesus.
She was full of energy and was a warm hearted person. She holds a special place in our family. The entire Tran clan miss her dearly. We look forward to seeing her again in heaven and give her a big hug! On that day, we all will be one in Jesus Christ and will all praise God Holy Name! Thank you Mrs. Thompson for your impact on my life. I know that you are home and very happy to be embraced by Jesus welcoming you into heaven!

This is to express sadness and appreciation for a very dear lady, loved by many in First Baptist Richardson. She was an example as a true Christian lady to us all.
