    Fay and I were friends during high school. She was a very sweet girl. She always enjoyed coming to our class reunions. The last time I talked to her was after her stroke and I called her about an upcoming class reunion. She said she’d love to come but couldn’t due to her condition. She was still in good spirits though.

    Fay was my first cousin and best friend throughout my childhood. It was only after we both married that we lost regular contact with each another. I spent many years in regular contact with her daughter, Robin, especially when we were both stationed as military wives in West Germany during the early – mid 1980s. Fay and I enjoyed each other immensely and loved each other like sisters. Until her passing, she and I were the only remaining family members of our generation. Now, I’m alone; but much enriched by the very special relationship memories we shared. I will miss her terribly.

    My deepest condolences I extend to Ritchie, his wife, and wonderful family. They have lost their Mom, Mother-in-Law and their Grammie. Fay will always be in my prayers until I join her in heaven. May God bless you all in this time of great sorrow.
