Faye Turley Ethridge…

Made sure I was at little league football practice 5 days a week for four years… driving 30 minutes 1 way each day.
Made sure I was at little league football games every Saturday for four years… driving at least 30 minutes.
Made sure I had food, clean clothes, and knew I was loved every day of my life.
Always gave wisdom, insight, and direction when I asked for it… and prayed for me when I didn’t ask.
Has always loved me, no matter what I did or how often I messed up.
Has loved my wife and has never once ever said anything negative about her or my children (Not everyone has that blessing).
Has been through more ups and downs in life than anyone knows (Including me), yet has a positive outlook on life.
