    candle 1Sweet Aunt Faye, not sure where to even begin, you have blessed my life so much for 59 years, so many wonderful & cherished memories of you, I’m truly honored that you are my Aunt! You gave of your time everyday without expecting anything in return, I have always seen you put everyone ahead of yourself, and just your kindness, love, caring, comfort, & spiritual sharing shows just the precious person you are & will forever be. If I listed everything you ever did for me, my sister or my parents or my child, it would become a book because you did so very much for me all throughout my life.
    You will forever live on in my heart, I will carry you with me every day as one by one your memories you so preciously gave me will be remembered each & every day of my life. We cry because we realize just how special you touched our lives, & how greatly you will be missed, but then as the tears slow or stop, we will be glad that you are no longer suffering & that you are with our Heavenly Father, awaiting all of us still here on earth, and when God call’s us home I’m sure your sweet spirit will be there waiting to embrace each family member, & friend once more. I love you so very much. Uncle Lavern, Everett & Chris, Molly, Mike, Brennan & Ryan have all shared in my life, they all remind me so very much of you, so through them I will always see you too!
    You will be forever missed, & loved. Rest peacefully sweet Aunt Faye. Your very strong faith taught me to have faith.
