To the family and friends of Mrs. Bailey always cherish the fond memories of time spent together and although you may grieve the Bible can be a source of comfort. At (Revelation 21:3,4) it speaks of a time when there will be no more sickness or death, also at (Acts 24:15) it speaks of a resurrection that we all can look forward to. May the peace and love of the God of the Bible be with you all.

As a Wings volunteer at West clinic it was such a blessing for me to meet Faye and to know her during the short time that I did. May God comfort Warren, Luther and all of her family and friends at this time. May God grace you with peace and comfort in knowing that you will see her again someday. Love to you all.

Mrs. Faye was my college Sunday school teacher while I studied at DSU. I will never forget her love for God's Word and her passion for people. She was a smart lady and knew instinctively when I was struggling in some area. I remember trying to slip out of a service early to avoid conversation but she chased me down in the parking lot! She showed her love to me and so many others in such a deep way. Mr. Warren you will be in our prayers. May God carry you during this difficult time. Love and prayers for your entire family.
