I was so sad when I read about Faye's passing. I got to know Faye at Anna's House this past year when I would visit my mother. Faye always put a smile on my face with her comments about Bingo, Balloon Toss and her faith. My last memory of Faye is last Tues., Oct. 2 when our family was celebrating out mom's 96th birthday during activity time with Anna's House residents. Faye expressed her pleasure of eating the pumpkin cookie, but most of all I remember her repeating - "take me to the Promise Land". I have been blessed by my brief time knowing Faye! I will miss seeing her! My sincere sympathy to her family!

My husband and I would like to express our sincere sympathy to the family and friends of your beloved Faye. Although we hadn’t had the opportunity to meet Faye personally, we do understand the pain of losing one so dear to our hearts. We would like to share with you comfort we have experienced from Gods word found in 2 Corinthians 1:3,4. Our Heavenly Father is truly a wonderful source of comfort, he is always there for the broken hearted and he truly cherishes you, especially in this time of sorrow. ( Psalm 34:18, 1 Peter 5:7) Please take a few moments, share your memories with those who surround you, for the memories shared are the ones most truly cherished, may they bring you comfort and peace as you begin to heal. Take care of yourselves and each other during this very difficult time.
