Faye always showed Jesus.
She took her time years ago to mentor some women and I was blessed to be a part of the group.I always am grateful for that time and for her life.

I met Faye Carrington, Kent and I went to kindergarten together, at a kindergarten trip their home ! I will never forget the warmth of love given and feeling that day! Faye’s quintessential devotion to the Lord is inspiring and a grand legacy! Faye is part of our family’s life! She loving treated my daughter and prayed with her (us) for a period of time! She was a friend to all and reached out to those in need! I’m blessed knowing such a wonderful soul and will cherish in my heart forever! Thinking of you Kent, Ran and all the family, praying with much love always! Thank you Faye, I love you!

We thought a great deal of Faye. She was always so loving and kind to everyone. In her years attending First Assembly in Hickory, Faye was one whom people looked up to as a genuine Christian lady. She certainly has a great reward in Heaven with her Savior now. May God Bless her family in this hour of loss.
