Dear Lynn, Chris, Sean, Lake, Mandy, and Shelby,

Words cannot describe how sorry I am since learning of Aunt Faye's passing. She was definitely like another mother to me and by far my favorite aunt (sorry Nancy and Liz but it's true). I will always cherish the time we spent with her (and ya'll) during our brief visits on our way to the beach each summer. Honestly, my family and I looked forward to visiting with her just as much, if not more, than vacationing at the beach. A couple of years ago when we stopped to visit she had cooked (among other amazing dishes) chicken and dumplings. My daughter, Haleigh, fell in love with the chicken and dumplings and now I cook them at least once a week but they will never be quite as good as Aunt Faye's. She was an amazing woman and will be missed by everyone that knew her. I will be praying that your memories of her will provide ya'll with some comfort during the days, weeks and months ahead.

Love to you all,

Deena Greene Anderson
