    Faye was always a welcome greeter at St. Paul’s. All who entered were blessed to meet and know her. May the family take comfort that she is in God’s presence now greeting those who follow her.

    Renee, I was sorry to hear about your mother’s passing. It was a joy to work with her at NPA. I started there just after my mother had died which left a big void in my heart and your mother was able to shrink that void. I quickly realized if I ate lunch a bit later, she would be in the kitchen stocking supplies and starting to clean and we could talk about all sorts of things; current events, our families, and whatever else crossed our minds. Sometimes I would be hard at work over my desk and she would just walk by and lightly pat my back, without saying a word. She helped me through a rough time with an extra dose of motherly comfort. God now has another special angel.

    Your mom was one of a kind! When she would need people for summer music I was the first one she called and then if she couldn’t get anybody for the last Sunday of the summer she’sd call me again. She will be missed!
