Faye Gotcher was a special person in every way, an "unforgettable character" who you meet on life's journey. She was incredibly special to the Gotcher family. She married, was faithful, and there for our father through the ebbs and flows of life together. She accepted Paul and I as if we were her sons, our wives as if they were her daughters, and our children as if they were her own grandchildren....and we all remember that with gratitude and thanksgiving. She was a person of strong character and abiding faith in Jesus Christ. Well done, Faye, for you were a good and faithful servant!

We only learned of this online today after having been unsuccessful reaching her by phone recently. Our sympathies are extended to Kenny, David, and Doug and their families.

Sorry to hear this. I didn't know this until Noe or I would have been at her funeral. We have been friends for many years
