Dr. Matt Simpson from Viera wrote on August 25, 2023:
For all those in Christ, the Saints, we 'meet to part' and 'we part to meet.' For my brothers and sisters in the LORD we do not grieve as those who have no hope. We have the promised and assured eternal hope of glory in God's presence forever. To Faye's family and friends, since she, decades ago, repented of her sin and believed the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, Faye completed her pilgrimage in this world and stepped into our LORD's heaven. All those in Christ will one day join Faye to enjoy our LORD forever.

Having Faye in my life has made my the journey especially blessed. She treated me like a daughter and was always there for me. She will truly be missed but the memories will always be with me.
