    My prayers are with the family in the loss of their mother. Faye and Brent were wonderful people and hold a special place in my heart for all the nice things they did for my mother, Juanita McCarty, while she lived in New Amsterdam. They were special angels!

    I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Faye. I will never forget how much she made me laugh when she would make her visits to Ferrellgas, no matter how she was feeling she always had a smile on her face and a story to tell. I will be forever greatful that I had the opportunity to have met her.

    We absolutely love the Shaffer General Store and our visits with Faye. Her and Brent's vision for their store and their town was infectious. We enjoyed all of our visits and friendships with her and her town. RIP peace Faye, it has been a very long fight!
