I am so sorry to hear about Faye. She was such a sweet lady. I remember her from Dr. Vollmer's office. My daughter always loved her. She would ask Dr. Vollmer if Faye could come and play outside with her, and Dr. Vollmer would say if Faye wants to she can. Faye would take the little kids outside and play. She was so good to all of them. She will be missed by all that knew her. Your family is in our prayers....

I will certainly miss dear Faye. She was always such a beautiful person, inside and out. My sister and I loved seeing her when we went to Dr. Vollmer's office. She will always be a beloved member of our family.

Dear Jake and Linda,
As you know, Faye worked on my teeth for many years and helped me not be so scared of Dr Ezelle;-) I mostly remember her tan and have enjoyed tanning myself. Years ago she saw me and asked me to please make sure I use sunscreen. It was so sad to see her at the nursing home but I was pleased that she remembered me. Andrews has lost another fine resident. Your are in my thoughts and prayers.
