    As a long time friend of Jim Bell, it was about twenty-five years ago that I had the pleasure of meeting his mom, Faye. She was a true Southern lady; charming, fun with sparkly eyes and a bright smile. Over the years, our paths crossed and there was a couple of occasions that she shared her wealth of knowledge about mortgages with me, which I found invaluable. The beauty of Faye isn’t merely her business acumen or professional savvy; to me, it was how proud she was of her two children Jim and Melinda. She was a mother who truly loved her children and that is truly beautiful.

    My sincere condolences to Jim, Melinda and family.

    Faye brought so much life and love into every room. Her advice was always compassionate and priceless.
    Oh how I will miss those hugs, that genuine smile and her contagious laughter. What a love of family she carried in her heart! Another link in our family chain is missing but Heaven has gained another beautiful angel.
    Rest in Peace my Sweet.
    Jim and Melinda, my heart breaks for you.

    Ma Bell was always the brightest light.
    She put everyone else’s needs first.
    We were blessed to have her at Sunshine because that’s what she was. She will
    be with us with every breath we take and
    when there is no breath left, we will be with her again!

    I, too, was blessed to have known Faye in high school. She was always precious – friendly, smart, caring. I enjoyed
    visiting with her at our high-school reunions. She was a sweet and kind person! She will definitely be missed! I’m thankful to have known her in our “growing-up” years!

    Faye was one of my special high school friends. We enjoyed some good times together. It’s so hard to know that I won’t see her or talk to her anymore here on Earth, but I’ll look forward to us being together again one day. Jimmy, Melinda, and Cameron, my sincere sympathy goes out to you at this difficult time.

    I’ve had the privilege of working with Faye and watching her prevail over the many struggles she endured later in her life. Faye’s incredible attitude was never shaken no matter how difficult life became for her and her family.
    God bless them!!

    Ma Bell was a mother to so many people especially those of us who marched with Jim in the HHS band. She was always there with a smile for everyone and always made you feel welcome when you came to their home. Such a great person and I know she will be missed by so many.

    Sorry this is so late. Faye and I worked together in the Mortgage business for years, We had lost track of one another and her name popped up today and I sadly learned of her passing a year ago. She was on of my favorite people, I loved her. Always positive and eager to help. Faye was a blessing to me.
