I'm very sorry about Faye. My thoughts and prayers go out to Nellie and the whole family. I know Faye will be greatly missed and we'll all be reunited in heaven one day. Faye was always kind and fun to be around. I'll remember all the good times from our childhood and all the sleep overs. With love and sympathy.

I worked with Faye for several years at B&G, She was one of a kind, she had a kind heart and she was a undercover comedian. She made me laugh on several occasions. Faye had love for all those that deserved it. May she rest in peace.
