Our heart felt sympathy goes out to you and your family on the loss of your loved one. Bob & Melba W. Smith Sr., January 28, 2005 Fay was one of my "pets" at Meadowbrook. She always had a smile for me. She always acknowledged I was there. How she did it depended on how she was feeling that day. Sometimes it was a smile, or a nod of the head, or by speaking to me. I always felt better about myself and the "day" I was having after I stopped to visit with Fay. I will miss her and her pleasant attitude. Judy Alene Hanson, January 27, 2005 Fay was a very special part of our family at Meadowbrook. She always had a glow in her eyes and a pleasant smile when I spoke to her. Having gotten to know her over the 2 plus years I've been here, I have seen the tender love of a daughter who was constantly available to assist her beloved Mother. It was obvious to all who work here that Fay was truly a gift to her family. The last few days were very trying to them all but God is faithful to sustain us in when our faith is tested and all we can do is cast ourselves upon Him. Fay is now in Heaven looking upon her glorious Savior; no longer in a body that is hurting and dependant on others to care for her. She is comletely well now and , yes, her daughter and grandchildren and greatgrandchildren can take much comfort that they will see her again on that Great Day. I want to express my sincere love for Fay. She was a wonderful example to all of us and even though we will miss her greatly, we will always covet the times we spent with her. Farewell, Fay, I'll see you on the other side of the river. I can hardly wait! Your brother in Christ, Neal NEAL W MAYS, January 27, 2005
