Lisa , Mark , Gene ,

Aunt Faye will always have a very special place in my heart - she always light right up when I would come visit and always made me feel better when I left our visits .
I stopped by twice last summer and missed her both times .
I know she is now in the place she has wanted to be for many years and she and others will be looking down on all of us to make sure we are doing what we are supposed to be doing :) .
Thank you for taking care of her for all these years .
My thoughts and prayers are with you all and your families
