God only made one of a kind when He made Fay. She lived life the way she loved, at full speed. I dared not ask a question for fear of the answer. I was the baby sister and she never let me forget.😇. Fay was kind beyond words, loved her family beyond belief and made every opportunity to do good for those around her. Mama’s first is now back in her arms. God bless those she left behind.
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family on today. May God give you the strength and comfort in the days to come.
