    Faye was the most special, talented, loving and delightful person. I loved sharing our time together during Ouida’s classes. We had endless conversations about art and art history. It was a most special and cherished time in my life. Sending love to all of you.

    To Marguerite, Benson, Joni, and your families - when we were informed of Faye's passing we felt such sadness. She was one of the last of a special generation and such a sweet and elegant person. What comes to mind is all the wonderful holiday occasions she hosted for our families to gather. Faye and Jonas gave us a beautiful engagement celebration in her home. There were so many wonderful times and memories. Faye will forever be loved and remembered. With sorrow, we offer our very sincere condolences.

    Marguerite and family, what a coincidence that in the past few days I had been thinking of your mother. She and Jonas made such a handsome couple. I have photos from when they went to Florida with my parents years and years ago. Memories so part of my childhood. I even remember when your mom brought you over to play at my house in the front yard with me. We must have been 7 yo. I send my heartfelt condolences to you all. Love always, susie
