I don’t know where to begin.... If I ever called her Vera she would say “What’s my name?” I would answer “Fafoo of course “. It’s a name only our family will understand. We have been “family” for over 50 years! We have shared wonderfully happy times and also some sad times, as families often do. She shared in the joy of the births of my children and their children. But it didn’t end there. That was the beginning of so many memories of Christmas’s spent together, vacations and visits too many to mention. Faf was a unique and beautiful lady and it’s hard to realize we won’t be talking and sharing memories again. However, I can’t say goodbye, only “au Revoir”

We will never forget our dear Fafoo! Saddened beyond words at how much she will be missed, yet even greater is the happiness and fond memories she brought us. The Faf will be in our hearts forever. ❤️

I called her Fafoo. She was like a grandmother to me. We would always visit her beautiful house when I was younger. She would sneak me potato chips when my mom wasn't looking. She still would remind me of that all the time, among all the other memories she would tell me. After we moved out of state we spent most Christmas' together and those moments will live on as beautifully etched memories in my mind and heart. She brought so much warmth and love to everything she did. My heart breaks knowing that I can no longer call her and talk to her on the phone, or come visit her. She never missed an opportunity to let you know how much she loved you. She had a great sense of humor, style and one of a kind personality. We will always be "Feehearts from Emerson". She is sooo missed, and sooo loved, and I just can't believe she is no longer with us. I will cherish all of the voicemails I've saved of her sweet voice and play some Frank Sinatra or Micheal Buble and think of all the drives in the car with her and Uncle Larry. As life goes on, I'll cherish moments and remember to take the time to think "This is Happiness" as she always would remind me. I love you a bushel and a peck Fafoo!
