We had great times together at the THS Reunions every other year. On the last one I was with a group and Faye took me back to my cousins where I spent the night. We talked a lot about life and she pointed out where some class members lived. My deepest sympathy to her family. I will be praying for you in the days to come. So sorry I cannot attend her service.
