    In this moment of sadness I hope that you can find peace in the storm and look back on the memories of your mom and smile when you think of her

    Aunt Faye will be dearly missed. She was one of the most amazing, funny and beautiful women I have ever known. But in Heaven she can finally be free from pain, and at peace.
