The body will be placed in state at the Sugar Valley Church of God, where the family will receive friends, on Sunday, April 29th, between the hours of 3:00 PM and 8:00 PM.


The family would like to thank the staff and management of Gordon Health and Rehabilitation Center for their care and compassion for Mrs. Faulkenberry during her stay.
