Dear Cousins, Shocked to get the wave and see the obituary of uncle Faye.Received the wave the day of the funeral. We thought so much of Faye and remember so many good times shared with both him and Donna. Especially Halloween parties and get togethers at Aunt Venices. Memories of him will be forever with us. Most Sincerely Neal and Connie

Uncle Faye will always hold a special place in our hearts. He was always full of love and kindness. We will forever remember happy times spent in their home throughout our lifetimes. We will miss card games, conversations, and lots of laughter. We love you Uncle Faye, and we will miss you until we see you again on the other side.
