    Faye was a very warm and caring lady and I feel blessed to have been her sister-in-law, wife of her brother Richard who was my soul mate and I’m grateful to God for being given the honor of joining such a loving, caring family. She will always haves a special place in my heart.

    Faye will be missed by many in Texas. She was always a phone call away. And even though we were miles across the USA we knew that no matter what family came first with Faye. Our family messed in more ways than one.
