  6. Since I heard this sad news, I have been thinking back about playing softball for the Carbide team in the Girls’ League in LaMarque and what great coaches Mr and Mrs Faust were. I won’t say how many years ago that was but it was a wonderful time with wonderful people. I am so sorry to hear of Mrs. Faust’s passing. Sending my love, prayers, and condolences to all in the family.

  7. She was an amazing great aunt and made a spam sandwich that was so good.

    “May the angels lead you into paradise; may the martyrs receive you at your arrival and lead you to the holy city Jerusalem. May choirs of angels receive you and with Lazarus, once (a) poor (man), may you have eternal rest.”

    I will see you in the heavenly kingdom Aunt Mary
