I knew Faye from the days I attended the First Presbyterian Church along with Helen James and Ruth Carver. We would always have lunch afterwards and socialize a bit. I also would see her at some of the Weber State girl's games. She was such a kind and personable gal and I'm glad she was a part of my life.

So sorry I wasn't able to attend the service today, but she was always such a delightful person. We are member of the First Presbyterian Church, too. Some years ago when I was Sunday School Superintendent and wanted to have a "Mother's Day Breakfast" for our teachers, I wasn't quite sure how to go about it. In a couple of days, here came my 'angel' Faye to tell me she would take care of the food for me. And she did, for several years. That is when I first remember her, but she was always such a dear person. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time, but know that you are rejoicing that she is out of her misery and in very good hands. Sincerely, Dean-Ellen and Fred

I am Uncle Joe and Aunt Doran's last daughter. I knew your Mom well and so loved her and especially her humor and laughter. She spent a lot of time at Promontory with your Grandma and Grandpa Howard. What a blessing they all were in Mom's life. she loved her family, which dearly included your Mom. What a great blessing she must have been in your life. I remember you boys so well, from the reunions at Como Springs. I'm sure you are as handsome now as you were then. God bless you and your family at this time of sorrow. We send our light and love to you knowing God will bless you with peace and comfort. Our love to each of you..... please tell Grant and Joann hello for us. they are such wonderful people. Ralph and Janet Carter....and my sister Thera Huish.
