    I remember when I finally realized there were 2 of you, Doris. I’d start a conversation with you and finish it with Faye not knowing she wasn’t you!! You guys were so fun to work with and always smiling. Made my day at Kyger. I wish I had known she was sick sooner I would have come to see you guys.
    Love and prayers to all your families.
    Love, Debbie

    What a wonderful gal Faye was!! So many good memories of her! She was definitely a gem! My prayers are with all of you at this time. Prayers of comfort and peace. I am a better person because God allowed me to call Faye my friend. She was a genuine person who enjoyed her life here on earth…. all the while keeping her heart set on heaven. She has fought the good fight. She has finished the race here on earth. She has her reward in heaven.
