In fact, everyone who met Faye, fell in love with her. She was the most spunky, hilarious, fashionable and gorgeous woman. She loved to garden, cook and shop and it didnâ€™t matter if it was at a Flea Market or Saks 5th Avenue, she was going to rock whatever she bought. Her most treasured possessions had to have a story behind them.
