    Each of you have my deepest sympathy in the passing of “Grandma Faye”. She was one of the happiest people. I will never forget when we were at the clubhouse, in bed and Mac was telling the story of the lady in the jail in Centreville (among others). It was so funny and Faye was rolling with laughter. I couldn’t help but laugh with her, and the story was hilarious too. I have some fond memories of her.
