    I am so sad that Faye has gone before us to heaven; but, am relieved and rejoice for her sake. I have known Faye since I was a very young child and Lisa and I were friends in kindergarten. We were brownie scouts and our mothers were our leaders. We have seen each other only a few times since they moved when we were in 2nd grade but we have remained friends and “pen pals” nearly 45 yrs ago!! Mom and I live you guys and are praying for your peace that passes your understanding!

    I met Faye in the early seventies after I was married and moved to London County. She became a wonderful friend. She was easy to talk to and had many interests and talents. She will be missed by so many. I pray the family will find peace and comfort in the days to come.

    To the Family, so sorry for your loss. Hope you will be comforted in knowing that Faye has the prospect of being resurrected, healthy (in the flesh), to Paradise Earth just as Jehovah God has promised. In fact , the vast majority will enjoy everlasting life right here on earth as God had intended from the beginning. God’s Kingdom will do this under the rule of Jesus Christ.
