Condolence from Sybil Austin Skakle on July 10th, 2015 10:28 pm

Please, allow me to add my condolences, even though I am removed from Hatteras Village. I have not vacated my heritage, nor the joy I find in my family ties. My father was first cousin of Faye’s grandmother because Victoria (Puss) Gray, Faye’s great-grandmother, was the sister of Mogiannah Oden Austin, my father’s mother, my grandmother.

My prayers are for the Comforter to come to each of you and to renew your hearts and strengthen your faith as you go through the grief journey. Grief can not be circumvented. Rejoicing in the reward of the departed, Faye, can make it less grievous . I speak from experience. I am 89 and have seen so many depart for Heaven.

Gove bless you with eternal joy,

Love in Him Who Is Our Brother,
Sybil Austin Skakle

At a low point of in my life more than 30 years ago, she and Buddy” kidnapped” me and took me to Hatteras where over one weekend they healed my spirit with their love, generosity and good laughs. I will never forget that. I will never forget Faye.
