Mrs. Faye:

I hope this message reaches you. I loved your husband. We had a lot of fun together with some of the equipment sales that we worked on. Even though most of the deals were of a serious matter, he was always so light hearted about things. He had the ability to make things more pleasant and had a knack for getting people to cooperate and to make them understand it was in their best interest in the long run. I regret that I didn't come to the service due to this Covid pandemic. He came to visit me several months before he passed. I knew he wasn't doing good health-wise, but I felt like he was giving me a farewell. Looking back, I know that was his intention. He always had concern for past clients and mutual friends. He asked me then how each were doing since our last visit as if he was going down his list. He also gave me the "Faye" update too! I will continue to miss him. I also miss seeing you. I hope this message finds you. (Please someone pass this on to her since I don't have her address!)
I love you Mrs. Faye
