Faye was my dearest friend. She, John and I graduated together at E.C.I. In 1963. We were roommates at Georgia Southern and enjoyed a lifetime of memories together. Although I am saddened by her passing, I know she is in a better place today. My love and sympathy go out to Robin, Ben, John and the family.
