My condolences to the family. I really enjoyed Faye, she was a sweet and funny lady who made me laugh. She attended a few of my Zumba classes back in the day. I had just seen her on the 13th on her way to her house, and it was good to see her after all these years. I was sad to hear the news of her passing the next day. Family may God comfort you each day going forward.
