Sandy, Melissa and family, we are devastated from the loss of Gramma Faye. She was always such a nice lady and would always want to know how we were. Although she didn’t come into our lives until about 10 years ago, we enjoyed haveing her come and visit with. We also enjoyed seeing and talking to her when at your houses. Her and my mother were only born one month apart and they were both heading into the twilight of their years. Sandy, it will be very hard for a while because you have been her caretaker for some years. You were very close and when you have time to think about all the things you did for each other your heart will be full. We will miss Gramma Faye, but will think of her fondly. Again, our deepest sympathy. The Wisnyai’s

To Faye – You are a wonderful woman and I know that you got your wings. I know you will be there as an angel to watch over us everyday. To Faye’s family – may you find peace in knowing that another angel was called upon to help guide us through life. My condolences and may peace be with you always.
