Gene and Family, we are so very sorry for your loss. Faye will be remembered by so many friends and classmates from James Wood High School, Class of 1958. We will have a special memorial for all 35 of our deceased classmates at our reunion in September. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Faye was a very special lady.
Deepest sympathy, Carolyn and Jay Hott
