  4. I had the pleasure of meeting Ms. Faye, through our hairdresser, Tammy. I got to meet her daughter, Barbra, and started to sit with her a couple days a week! We had fun telling stories and had laughs watching t.v. We took rides on hot days for ice cream, which she loved! I got her the blue bunny minis which made her smile! She loved grilled cheese, marshmallow treats, Mac and cheese and always something sweet! She loved the strawberries and bananas that I cut up to eat!
    I will always remember Ms. Faye, she was a great mom to all! I love her a lot, she was a special lady with a great family, I got to meet them all! Each and everyone of you should be very proud of what you did for her! It wasn’t always easy, some days were really hard, but you worked together to make her days better and helped her on her way to her eternal home! Thank you all, I love you all!!
