Remembering many pleasant visits on the side porch. Dr. Johnson and Faye had many interests, especially finding item for their shop.
They were part of what made Fredericksburg a special place. Anyone who got to know them was fortunate.

Faye and Ed were good friends to me and I will miss her, now that she has left us to join him.
We enjoyed many conversations and our group of neighbors’ birthday luncheons .
She especially liked having her favorite, Crab Cakes.
Her long years of pain are now at an end. May she Rest In Peace.
