    Dear Mama Faye,

    Thank you for being the most amazing Grandma anyone could ask for. Thank you for caring for us when we were sick, feeding us and teaching us how to make delicious food, all of the laughter and memories over the years and for being there through everything. You are missed so deeply. We love you forever.
    Breezy, Andrew, Noah and Moses.
