    Faye was the greatest mother in law that I could ever ask for. From the first day I met her she treated me like family. Both her and my father in law both gave me the the greatest gift ever. “Their blessing to marry their daughter”. I will never forget you or Pops. I promise to love, cherish and take care of your daughter. Thank you for being such a big part of my life. Mom I love you and miss you…..
