    My heart goes out to all of your friends and family. I unfortunately was not blessed in knowing you better but in the short time we knew each other through Derek, who I’m sure will enjoy your company, there were always so many fun memories! Your smile was contagious! May you be at peace as you gain your angel wings! You may not be with us on earth but you will live on in all of our memories and hearts. Thank you for blessing us with just being you!

    All my sympathy to the loved ones of Faye. I knew Faye as a childhood friend in the neighborhood she still lived in as the feisty little sister of one of my best friends. Faye will be greatly missed by all but will be watching over all she has loved.

    Prayers for the family… I’ve been surely keeping everyone in prayers over the Thanksgiving Weekend… I do continue to pray for peace of mind and a calmness over everyone who may be grieving the loss of a loved one.

    Fay you were so special and always willing to talk and joke with me. I love you as one of my sisters. Gene you are in my prayers. I send you love and hugs. She is no longer in pain and for that I am truly grateful. I know she is up there dancing with the Angel’s and enjoying the company of Aunt Peg and Uncle Fred. God bless you all Gene Vickie Terry and Eric. I am always here if you need me. Including just someone to talk to. Love you all so much.

    And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17. We all will meet Jesus at one time: when He comes for us at His second coming! And as for Fay, she waits too for Him as does everyone else. She will be brought up first before us! A new body we will all get, every single one of us!
    She was one of a kind! Truly like her mom! I remember hide and seek with Lorrie and a name we called her and Peggy! 😂 Good times! Can’t believe it though. I just saw her and Gene in Meijer just last month! My heart goes out to the Waltons, Lorrie, and the rest of the family. It’s never easy losing a loved one. Memories will keep her alive!
