My mother, Madeline Cousins, a very old friend, always spoke of Faye with great affection.

Aunt Faye was the best aunt I could ever wish for. She always had time to talk and paid attention to every word, even when I was a kid. She was a fantastic cook and wanted to feed everyone who came to visit, even if she had already cleared off the table and finished doing dishes. We went on a couple of camping trips when i was young. I wish we could have made a trip to Montana together. I guess I saw more live music with her and uncle Cecil than anyone. I remember her and Mom would always try...

Rodney, I am so sorry to hear of your mom's passing. I remember going to your house with you and Rudy and your mom made all of us kids feel like we were at home. She was a wonderful lady.

Embracing your family in the Light of Peace and Gratitude for Faye's life.

Rodney, so sorry to hear of your Mom's passing...another great lady of "East Bottom" has been lost. Love & prayers to you all.

Rodney - I'm so sorry for your loss. I have fond memories of you and Rudy in the USMCR. The good old days.

Faye was a beautiful lady inside and out. She was always the first to help anyone who needed it. She was one of our Florida Street moms that helped raise us bottom kids. What a lady she was.
