    Faye I read your book and was very impressed. It would be a good read for everybody as they travel through life and have the challenges that come our way. I always knew that you were a strong good hearted person and had a strong belief in our creator. We both have experienced some loss in our lives that was difficult to accept but God gave us the strength to go on with our lives knowing that he is always there for us and helping us remember the good that we enjoyed with the members no longer with us here on earth. I am so glad that our paths crossed in life and we have a very special friendship. Love you as a dear friend and admire you as a person. Great book!!!
