  1. So very sorry to hear of Faye’s passing. I remember her with Love. When I was married to Jimmy Dickerson, we saw each other a lot along with Dale and Thelma Lance. I know Terry remembers me, and again, l am so sorry that you have lost your Mom. Prayers for all the family.

  2. Our deepest sympathies to the family. Terry is our son in law, and we obviously knew his mom and dad. Knowing this family is a rich privilege, and we are so blessed to remain connected in prayer and love.

  3. I went to church with Miss Mathis and she showed us all love and I will always remember her . prayers for the family

  4. So very sorry to hear of Faye’s passing. My husband and I traveled together on our trip to Israel several years ago. We loved her smo much and tried to help her on the trip. What a blessing she was!
