Faye Grinstead passed away this morning around 4:15am. Please keep this family in your thoughts and prayers.
I am very sorry to read this about Faye. More heartache for her family....
Thoughts and prayers to her family at this time.
Who is faye? I know who tara is of course.
My deepest sympathies to The Grinstead family and friends. I hope Mrs. Grinstead gets the comfort of being with her child finally. God Bless.

That being said, I find it dispicable that she passed on without the benefit of seeing her daughter's murderer pay for their crime.
My thoughts and prayers are with Tara's family as they mourn the passing of Faye. I am sad that she has passed, but I hope she and Tara are having the reuinion that Faye prayed for while on Earth.

God Bless Faye and Tara and the family.
This is always so heartbreaking when a parent passes away before knowing what really happened to her child. The memorial is very sweet.

Everyone has already said everything else I was thinking too, so I'll complete this with - ditto to all the above!

Very sad. May she rest in peace with her daughter Tara.
Oh my- peace to the family and I hope Faye learns the answer to the question...
My thoughts and prayers are with Faye and Tara's family.
I think of Tara all the time and Faye, too.
This is extremely sad.

May she rest in peace.
I wonder what happened to her? Perhaps she died of a broken heart? If I had to endure what she is going through, I'm pretty sure I would pass on as well.

RIP Faye Grinstead. I'm so glad that you are now with your loving daughter.
Well Faye finally knows what happened to her daughter. :( At least that is my belief.
God Bless her, and may she find peace with her daughter and the angels. :eek:
