      I was so shocked and saddened when Richard called me about Faye. I have always treasured my connection to both Faye and Leon.
      My thoughts are with you during this very difficult time.

    Faye and I were cousins, but she seemed a sister to me,
    We grew together and shared so much..
    She was like a Angel here on this earth and sure she will be a Angel in heaven too.

    Faye was a wonderful nurse, I worked with her and it was a pleasure when I was assigned to her team. She was the kind of nurse I would want taking care of me or my loved ones. I am sorry for your loss of Faye, God Bless you all.
