  2. Rev. S. T. and Betty Adkins says:

    Bob and all the family I was so shocked to read of Faye’s passing. She was a dear friend when we both worked at Shelby Sales Book. I had no idea she was ill. Just want you to know that maybe we did not see each other often, but I thought of her often and cherished her friendship and always will. She was a jewel for sure. Our prayers are for comfort and peace during this difficult time.
