You were a beautiful woman. Your biscuits looked delicious. You're in heaven now making biscuits for the Lord. R.I.P

I had my first visit to the cafe on 4/10 unaware of the tremendous loss. I have to say it was an honor to have been there on that sad day. I only wish had met Carol Fay. God be with you!

I got to meet her last August when I came to Franklin to visit my sister from Georgia. Miss Fay was very gracious in posing for a picture with me. Her smile lit up the room! She was so sweet and will be missed so much. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.

Miss Carol Fay, I was traveling through on my way back to Wisconsin a while back. We had a great talk over at the Cafe, and you treated me with the kindness of a long time friend. You made my wife and I feel like we lived across the street, instead of across the country... May you rest in God's Peace and Love. It was honor and pleasure to meet you.

To My Family:
I just want you to know that you all have been in my thoughts and prayers.I am sorry i am unable to be with you in person but I am with you in spirit and heart. Tears still flow from my eyes but God is who HE is. I shall miss my cousin and her warm , funny sense of humor. She touched many lives and will be missed. To me she was not the Biscuit Lady but just Carol Faye, My dear sweet cousin! Love Constance (Connie)

I can't imagine the Loveless Cafe without Carol, she was very kind to me at a very a very difficult time in my life and I'll never forget her. Everytime I think of her I see her dancing in that kitchen while she cooked and laughed. The woman knew how to laugh! I know she will be greatly missed.

To Carol Fay's family
God knows there will be sorrw,so He gives us tears to cry. He knows there will be trials when His children ask Him "Why?" But He's our Heavenly Father, and He'll take us by the hand to lead us through the sorrows that we cannot understand.
God has all the time we need--He feels the pain we feel, and He above all others, knows a heart takes time to heal.. God Bless You All

I have always enjoyed visiting Loveless but never got to meet Ms. Ellison--I loved watching her on Throwdown with Bobby Flay and the Loveless is dear to my heart. God bless Ms. Ellison's family--Ms. Ellison is a true Nashville treasure who I will miss on my future trips to Nashville. Prayers are with family and friends.

I am a Nashville native who lives in Florida now and no trip home was complete without a visit to the Loveless. It will never be the same without her. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family.
