      Or Sympathy to Faye Anna’s family,
      Faye and Bollie lived in our neighborhood north west of Russell, great families.
      We stayed in touch thru the years and they even joined with us for family reunions.
      They are missed, many good times.

    I first met Faye when I was a student at Southwest State and she has been a part of my life ever since. I will miss her laugh, her stories, and her big heart. Always remember those wonderful times you had with your mom! I know that Faye and Bollie are out there together planning something…..that should put a smile on everyone’s face.
