20 years ago this beautiful blond and I were together in a Mommy and Me class at Sunshine Schoolhouse. She with her Tommy and me with my Mary. It was instant friendship. We traveled in and out of our lives these past 20 years, but her gift was making me feel like I was the most important person when we would meet up, like no time had passed. I loved her. She was all the good things. Light and love and happiness. How lucky we all were that she graced our lives.
Faith was truly the light and joy of the extended Haley/Mulcahy family. She made everything more fun, more enjoyable and was so authentically real. There was no pretense or fakeness about her. We were so blessed that she picked Derek to be her husband and join our family .... I will forever miss my “go to friend” and family dinner seat mate. I am so grateful to have had Faith in my life and family ❤️
Faith was one in a million......There are truly no words to express the pain that is felt from her loss. She was truly loved by her husband, children, family, friends and all that knew her. My heart goes out to all of you right now....I am so happy that I got to be a part of her life, as I couldn't ask for a better neighbor and friend. There was never a time that she was not there for me or my family....whether it was to talk, to listen to me vent, to help me plan and host a party, to give me advice or simply just to sit and enjoy a glass of Kendall Jackson together.
I will never forget the time that my daughter, Gabs, forgot her keys and couldn't get home from school because I was at work. Well of course, in a panic, I called Faith and she always came to the rescue. She offered to have Gabs stay at her house until I got home. What a relief that was to know I always had that place that I could call my second home, right next door. Well of course, not only did she accommodate Gabs, she left her a variety of snacks as well...that was Faith. When I was planning my husband's surprise 50th birthday party, I couldn't have done it without her and her wonderful family. She went above and beyond to make sure that I had all the help I needed to pull it off..and that we did! I can go on and on to talk about all the things she has done for me and my family but that would take forever. She was beyond amazing. She fought the toughest fight and through it all she was always happy and never complained. I can only hope that I can be half the woman that she was. Knowing her and being a part of her life has been such a blessing and always brought me such joy. I will always remember the laughs, the wine nights, our Christmas gatherings, and all the good times we had. I know that Faith will live on in her beautiful children and husband who have been her rock through all of this. As much as she will be missed, her memory will always continue to live on in our hearts and she will always be shining down upon us. I love you mostest, Faith and I hope you are at peace right now with all the angels up above.
So very sorry for the loss of your beautiful wife, mother, sister. From our first meeting only a few years ago, I could feel that she was pure sunshine. Every time I see a yellow flower, I think of Faith. Raising a glass of Kendall Jackson Chardonnay today to her beautiful life and family. Holding you all in my heart, especially in this next coming year. Love, Diane Q.
