Add Your Own

Jan & Reagan Popplewell

Faye was a one in a million and we were very blessed to call her "sister" and dear friend. She loved God, her family, her friends, her brothers and sisters in Christ, and she quite plainly loved life! She never left you wondering what her opinion was about anyone or anything, but in turn she respected yours. Just hours before Jesus whispered her name and called her home we had a long chat and she was happy, looking forward to going the movies and hoping Reagan would soon be well enough to continue our Captain D's outings after church on Sunday. We loved you Faye, we cherished our friendship and although we will miss you with all our hearts, we are happy to know you are HOME singing with the angels!
