To the Diil Family,
May you all find peace and happiness in knowing that Faye is at rest with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Tommy and I were hiking buddies for a few years, and I got to know the Dill family through this hobby and church.
Faye was always a inviting and gracious host. In those years, Faye was a tall statuesque woman, warm, and caring. She always wanted us to check and double check to make sure we had everything wa needed. Always to wished us to be safe.
If she knew we were going away for a weekend, she would always prepare frozen meals for us. Fully cooked, well seasoned, wrapped up tight, ready to make a hike with. Now if you have not hiked 6-8 hours , set up camp in the middle of nowhere, how good this meal could taste, is most likely loss on you. Roast beef, potatoes, carrots, all in a thick rich sauce, seasoned just right..mum. yep you felt Faye's love, right on the mountain top.So much time and care just to ensure that we were well fed.
Faye was a caring wonderful Christian women who always cared and loved her family and friends.
