John – I am so sorry for your loss. Faye has been such an integral part of the KPS/BHE retiree group as well as a great friend to all of us. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time.
I was very sorry to hear of Faye’s passing, John. She will be missed by all of us here at Black Hills Energy. My thoughts are with you and your family.
I am sorry for your loss of Faye. Our thought and prayer are with you.
I’m saddened to hear of her passing. She raised a remarkable family and leaves a lasting impression.
Mrs. Hadley drove the school bus I rode on for years. I remember her playing Dionne Warwick music and giving all of us homemade treats like popcorn balls on Halloween and ice cream bars on warm sunny days. She was kind but firm with all of us. I know I always said thank you, but now I really appreciate how she made riding the bus a wonderful memory.
Erla Fay was a neighbor, as well as a cousin (I believe) to my mom Eva (Hulce) Mason. My sympathies to John and family. I remember her garden very well. It was a showplace. Our Love, Mary (Mason) Mitchell
I am so sorry for your loss.
Sorry to see your loss of Faye. Prayers of comfort at this time.
