I did not come to know Faye personally, but I did come to know her husband Carl during our time with Georgia Prostate cancer coalition. It’s through this organization I sent my prayers and condolences to Carl and the rest of the family.
May fond memories of Faye bring you comfort during this hard time in your life. Look back on all the good memories you were able to have and smile at the fact that you were able to share these before her passing. Our heart and prayers go out to you and your family.
May God bless you and your family during this time of grief.
~ Dr. L. Matthew Thompson
Our deepest sympathies are extended to Faye's family, friends, and classmates at this time.

Servant of God, Well Done!
Charles Wesley (28 Dec 1707 - 29 Mar 1788)
Music by George J. Elvey (27 Mar 1816 - 09 Dec 1893)
(The Methodist Hymnal, 1966, #288)
Wesley wrote this hymn in 1770 on
the occasion of the death of clergyman George White.
Elvey's tune, "Diademata", has been set to several other hymns, notably "Crown Him with Many Thorns" and "Soldiers of Christ, Arise".
Servant of God, well done!
Thy glorious warfare’s past;
The battle’s fought, the race is won,
And thou art crowned at last.
With saints enthroned on high,
Thou dost thy Lord proclaim,
And still to God salvation cry,
Salvation to the Lamb!
O happy, happy soul!
In ecstasies of praise,
Long as eternal ages roll,
Thou seest Thy Savior’s face.
Redeemed from earth and pain,
Ah! when shall we ascend,
And all in Jesus’ presence reign
With our translated friend?
