Faye liked the song "Take a Trip" that was sung by Marty Stuart. The lyrics are as followed:

I'm gonna take a trip

On that old gospel ship

I'm going far beyond the sky

I'm gonna shout and sing

Until the heaven's ring

When I bid this world Goodbye. 


Faye had written a letter before her passing for her children:


As I am getting older and weaker I know my time here is drawing near, I first wanted to add a line to this.

                I have had such a great life and want to give thanks where thanks belongs to the on and only Jesus  Christ, so many times I have gotten angry and began to feel sorry for myself, but that was the worst thing anyone can do. You are suppose to thank God for the health and family he has given you and me, so when you hurt and feel all alone, think of all the good things he has given you.  We are all his children and he has no favorite one, he loves us all the same. This is what I want you to remember in your times of sadness.  “Thank Him”

                                                Love you so much
