A fond farewell to our loving cousin who was generous, good hearted and oh so talented. Every time we got together it ended up being a praise party. Many of my childhood memories center around the time we all spent in Hawkins at Papa's and Aunt Ora's homes. And Faye was there- smiling and helping. Love you, Faye. I pray for comfort and God's peace for your sons. Deb.
remembering back in the day when Faye, Gail , Kimlynn, Chris and I would get together and do the soul train lineup....too funny especially when Faye came down the run way, lol with her old time dance routine...we'd sing a lot and even at one time got some of her grands with my two , with Gail directing to do the "back back train...memories aren't lost...rest in peace my friend
