I was blessed to have known Faye over many years as a sister in law. She possessed the ability to be forthright and honest in her opinion when sought. Never in the years that I knew her did I ever hear her speak in an ill natured way about anyone, she was always quick to say, "Let's just pray for them Jimmy" Faye is a prime example as are her siblings as to what having been raised by Christian parents can render. I am grateful that she learned as a child about the Lord Jesus Christ and served him throughout her entire lifetime here on earth. Although I will miss her presence here it is only human nature but I share in her happiness in being reunited with Mrs. Newton, Johnnie and Mertis as well as her little brother who she so longed to see again. May the family take comfort in knowing she is free from all pain and sorrow and her heart is filled with contentment in her heavenly home, in the presence of her creator.

She was a wonderful mother in-law and mother that will be greatly missed. Until we meet again. We love you. Frankie & Norma
