So sorry to hear of Miss JoFaye's passing. She was a good woman and will be missed. She has been so helpful to me since mom's death. I will miss talking to her and visiting. I could always ask her about recipes and how to cook something that I wasn't sure about.

I have so many found memories of Mrs. Jo Faye. She was one of my "other mothers" when I was growing up. Her love for all of us was abundant at all times. She always had plenty of food, drink and hugs, no matter how many of us children would show up at her home. Her love and devotion for her family, church and friends were incredible. She lived her life as a Christian and set a wonderful example for all of us to follow. My prayers go out to her family.
