Farewell, Faye. I will never forget the first time we met. You, me, and Kris at The Corner Room... for snacks and jokes! When I first visited your home, I remember marveling at your kitchen and the way you worked your magic in it. I remember your reactions to my contributions to the wedding... the singing? Positive. My attempt to put a New York singer make up job on the bride? LOL! Yeah... not so much. The last time I saw you was at Alex's ordination. You asked if I remembered you. Silly. Not remembering you would be impossible. I don't know much about the majority of your life. But, if the world were to judge you on nothing more than the daughter you brought into the world who turned into my college roommate, my lifelong friend, and the woman with the strongest convictions I've ever known... which can be admirable and infuriating at the same time, then there are a great many of us who are in your debt. Thank you, Faye. Safe journey.
