    Faye was such an important part of our church lives…her loving, no holds barred personality will be missed in this world, but I am sure she and Otto are having a wonderful reunion filled with laughter and dancing. Sending love to the family.

    I loved working with Faye. She was unique, she was fun, she brought us so much laughter with her sense of humor and her cheery songs. All of us were very close. She was very important to the early years of CARE. She & Otto were awesome. She loved her family. I am sorry for your loss. Martha Rogers
