Uncle Gary (I hope you don't mind me still calling you uncle.) I struggled with whether or not to share this with you privately or openly in this tribute, but I ultimately decided everyone who knows/knew you and Aunt Fay should hear this, because it is a testament to you both. I have never told anyone this, but I had a schoolgirl crush on you both. That may seem like a shocking statement, but it is sincerely the most innocent and truest expression of my feelings as a young teenager. I thought Aunt Fay was one of the most beautiful women I had ever seen. Her eyelashes were so perfect, and they gave her a classic Hollywood movie quality, but it was her demeanor and quiet, calming presence that made her absolutely stunning to me. And you, Uncle Gary, were larger than life and the perfect manly compliment to her femininity. You were, to me, the perfect couple (thus my crush) and your love for each other always filled the room. You didn't know I was watching, but every silent gesture you made towards one another resonated with me. Your passion for each other wasn't overt, it was intimate and deep like a slow-moving river and it caught me up in its truth. I wanted that same love in my life, and although I have struggled, I feel your love has guided me to be a better mate, even when I haven't always wanted to be. I am sure your relationship had its struggles (it wouldn't be a love story if it didn't) but knowing that you were by each other's side for 49 years underlines the true depth of your love and commitment. Aunt Fay will be missed by everyone who knew and loved her, which most certainly includes me, but I want you to know her memory and the memories I have of you both together have deeply affected my life, and they will stay with me forever. I love you. ~ Jodi

Fay was my oldest and dearest friend. Together we have shared much laughter and tears, much joy and sorrow. I believe she has touched the hearts of so many people because to know her was to love her. Her memories will linger forever. I hope her family can be at peace knowing that God has reserved a place for Fay and His angels are now taking care of her.
