Mrs. Faye was an awesome lady whom I came to know once my baby sister married her stepson Tommy Johnson Jr. she was an amazing mother, grandmother, and great grandmother to all of them. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her but we also know that she is walking, running and rejoicing on the streets of gold with our Lord and savior and is no longer suffering here on earth. I know we all will miss her but we are comforted in knowing that we all will see her again one day on the other side of glory. My thoughts and prayers are with all of her family as they learn to live each day with out her but know that she is in pain no more and will be happy forever. All my love to you all.
