Linda and I didn't know much about Faith other than to say hello when passing in the hallway. We became friends when we attended a class reunion years later. We realized that, other than the size of our Class, the  reason we didn't know each other was the fact that she was brilliant and was in classes that we never knew existed! She was such an accomplished person, and we shall miss her smile. David and Linda Roots.

I thought of her as quiet in high school. Like a lot of our classmates, I got to know her better at reuions, and really enjoyed getting to know her better -- not well, but well enough to be impressed with her career. A very unselfish one.
