    Faye was a wonderful nurse to my husband Mark and always was willing to lend an ear or a shoulder to me as I navigated Mark’s health challenges. Thank you so much! ❤️

    My prayers to the family ♥️ Ms. Faye. An incredible nurse and the sweetest friend. I learned so much from her in the 3 years we worked together. Oh how her patients adored her. She cared so much for me and my baby girl. I wish my daughter could’ve gotten the chance to meet sweet sweet faye. Ms. Faye made sure I was always taken care of during the work hours. She would pull me to the side check my blood pressure and would make sure I had eaten and would even do my work for me most day as if she didn’t have enough on her plate. She loved Her granddaughters, sons, family and AC very much. I loved listening to stories about them all. She had such a great personality and a funny sense of humor. My life will forever be touched by this kind lady. May her legacy live on. You will not be forgotten Ms. Faye

    My sweet friend whom I always enjoyed working with @ Lincoln Skilled Care. I’m so lost for words. I remember you when I was like 7 years old. I remember when you started working for Dr W.D Jones. Fay was a very professional nurse whom always gave her patients center attention! She will be missed by many and I know she’s flying high in heaven with Kenneth. My deepest condolences to all her family and friends! Prayers for you all. I loved Mrs Faye like family! Fly High Sweet Lady until we meet again!

    I loved this woman! My father (George J. Wright) worked for Dr. William D. Jones and I grew up around the office staff. Her son Kenneth and I were friends too. We rode bicycles and go carts together. She was a great nurse. The last time I saw her we hugged and reminisced. Family, you are in my thoughts and prayers.
