We are so sorry for your loss. Fayrene was such a blessing to all who knew her. Her picture is perfect as this must be how she is smiling in heaven now without pain or sickness and in the presence of her Lord. May this precious family grieve with hope knowing that this separation is temporary. God bless you with comfort and strength in the days ahead.
