Alienum phaedrum torquatos nec eu, vis detraxit periculis ex, nihil expetendis in mei. Mei an pericula euripidis, hinc partem.

    Faye was such a special person. She was spunky and very creative. I enjoyed her friendship. She taught me so much about baking, crafts, and how to make it work with whatever you have…. she was such a blessing in my life and to all the lives around her… Faye always would tell it how it was and that is one thing I loved about her. She was a great friend, always having my back more like a grandma… I would always call her my adopted grandma and she loved it… I am going to miss you but more than that I know I have a real angel in heaven watching over me and all your family.❤️
