    Renee I feel so blessed to have known the kindness of your parents.  Over the years I have seen how much their generosity and kindness have made a positive difference in the lives of so many. No words can express the sadness felt for your loss nor can words make it easier for you at this time,  but take comfort in knowing your mom was a special lady who meant a great to not only me and my family but many others.

    Condolences to Faye’s family and friends, she was far too young to be taken from you and from the few times we met Faye over the years it didn’t take long to realize what a kind person she was. RIP Faye.
