Faye Tieche

~~This is the best pie in the whole wide world! Faye was a dietician, and a fabulous cook. Dick started working for her in the middle school lunchroom so that he could get out of study hall. A lasting friendship grew. Dick took me to meet Faye when I was newly pregnant with Haley. All our children adopted and loved "Aunt Faye."
