All of you have my deepest sympathy during this very difficult time with the loss of Ona Fay.  She certainly had lots of influence on many of our lives and her utmost faith in God.  She will certainly have a wonderful place in Heaven.

We rejoice to have heard that Ona Fay has finally gone to Glory... and to her reward.  For what ever reason, God kept her here longer than we, in our finite minds, thought He should have.  While at the same time we grieve, no matter how long He tarried, that a mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, dear friend can no longer be seen and visted.  Ona Fay, by any definition, especially that of Scripture, was a Saint.  I recall that when she broke her hip and didn't understand what happened - other than feeling what must have been great pain - I asked her in the hospital how she was feeling.  She told me that "we mustn't complain".  I explained that it wasn't complaining if we were asked.  "Oh", she replied, "then, in that case, I hurt very badly".  She will be sorely missed.  But what is our loss, is Heaven's gain.

Dear Grandma,
    I woke up early this morning, you were on my mind! Mom said your funerial was such a "Quacker Style", I am so happy. I have several paintings you have done in the past in Alan's and my bedroom. You have been in my thoughts for many, many years. I hope you are happy in Heaven and you can come see me one day! I also hope you have found grandpa, Jane, David, Lisa, Tom and my grandma and grandpa Carey, along with your sister Rosie.
    Grandma I miss you so much! Mom and Dad, Thank you for being there the last hours.
    This is my closure.
Love, Gina
