We will miss Aunt Fay. She was a kind and endearing woman. That treated us as if we were members of her family. We will miss her and she will always be a special part of our family.

Aunt Fay was an important part of our family. She was a kind, caring and patient woman. She treated us as if we were her own children. We loved her and will miss her very much. May her memory be for a blessing!

I'm very sad to hear of Fay's passing. We met a year ago or so when she and my mother were sharing a hospital room. As they spoke they figured out that they had worked together at Roland's department store in the 1940s. They were great friends in the day and had not seen each other in over 60 years. They had a great few days together. Mom talked about it until her passing this summer. Sorry for your loss, she sure was a great lady!
