  1. Steven L Weakley says:

    I was very sorry to hear of the passing of Faye. I was introduced to her in 1968. She was a kind and thoughtful lady and at that time in my life she helped me tremendously. I was blessed with the time I was able to spend with her and her family. May God give peace and ease the sorrows to her family.

  2. Phil Hewitt says:

    I am very sad to hear of the passing of Miss Faye. We kids always said Granny Faye. Although I was not related but a very good friend to her grand children born in the 70’s as was myself. She was always so good to us. There is something about the folks born in the 20’s. They always had that spark in the eye but such a calmness which is not seen much these days. Our lives were so much blessed to have her. Thank you Miss Faye.

    Jenny, Terry and family,

    My sincerest sympathies on your loss. I have many childhood memories of Aunt Faye, especially in her hair saloon. Playing with FeeFee, sweeping the floor and putting combs in that green solution. Please know you are in my thoughts.

    Dear Jenny,
    Please accept my most sincere condolences. Although, I never met Miss Faye, I can tell that she was a beautiful person by just having met you. You are always so fun-loving and when I’ve heard you speak of your mother, you did so with so much joy in your voice. I know you are sad beyond words but please be at peace that Miss Faye is walking the streets of heaven with Jesus and all who have gone ahead of us. She is fully restored to a new body and is having such a good time making peach cobbler for everyone. I bet that Jesus loves her peach cobbler! Please do not hesitate to call me if you need a listening ear. I understand completely what you have been going through because we did the same for our parents. Take care now, Jenny, and may God bless you and your family. He will be with you throughout your grief journey. All you have to do is ask Him. With tears and hugs and the upmost respect. Virginia Love
