    I am so saddened to hear about your loss. May your cherished memories of Faye comfort you during this difficult time. Please know that God sees your pain and has set in motion help for your suffering. Death is such an unnatural part of life. In Revelation chapter 21 verse 3 and 4 He has given us the promise that one day death will be no more. It will be a beautiful day when we aare reunited with our loved ones who have fallen asleep in death. John 11:11. As we await paradise, may the peace of God be with you. Matthew 5:5; Isaiah 25:8. You are in the thoughts and prayers of many.

    Wow! Aunt Faye you will be MIssed!
    But I will still have all my memories-fun times together- wonderful talks throught out my childhood years and all the wonderful get togethers-our family enjoyed! It was and always will be a cherished fun time when we all get together!
    I still have every single Birthday card you sent me..and I will always remeber the 1/2 stick gum you would give each of us when you and Uncle Ray came to visit us growing up. You helped us kids grow up and to learn all about surviving in a big family, through the bad times and good. You loved garage sales.. you were always there when our family needed help. You may be gone but you will always be in my heart and all my fond memories of you will always be with me…love you Aunt Faye……you will be missed but not forgotten.

    I am so sorry for your loss. The pain of losing someone you love can be overwhelming. As you cherish the fond memories that you hold dear, may you also find comfort in knowing that our loving heavenly Father Jehovah promises us that very soon, he will by means of his son Jesus ’swallow up death forever, and wipe the tears from all faces.’ (Isaiah 25:8) What a wonderful day that will be! He also gives the promise of a future resurrection of our loved ones, “Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” I hope these few words will bring you a measure of hope.

    Bob & Linda….
    So sad to hear that you lost your Mom.
    Faye!… What a gal, and what a lot of fun. She was so cute and good to use kids. And I knew she was always tuned-in to ’everything’. It was great to be at your house Linda and be around her. Wonderful smile and her eyes always twinkled.
    See you in 2014 …right? Can’t believe it.
    Love, April
