Faotta Trevetta Frazier Collins, what a name, what an amazing women!! My relationship with Faotta began 22 years ago when my oldest daughter, Katie, was 5 years old and my son, Webb was 1 year old. One spring day, while driving down Center Street, I noticed a little green house surrounded by beautiful buttercups. Always looking for a photo opportunity, I pulled over, got my children out of the car, and proceeded up the little front porch and knocked on the door. A beautiful women came to the door, I introduced myself and asked if I could take some pictures of my children in her buttercups. Faotta was thrilled to share her buttercups not only for pictures, but also sent us home with the most beautiful bouqet of yellow flowers you have ever seen. For the next several years I took spring picutres around the little green house on Lucy Street. Then life happens, I had a 3rd child, then a 4rth and years passed without seeing Faotta. In the Spring of 2010, while driving down Center Street, I noticed the little green house. I was alone and had a few minutes to spare, so I stopped, wondering if the sweet, little lady named Faotta was still alive. I walked up the rickity front porch and memories began to flood my mind. I knocked and in a few moments the door opened and there was Faotta, all smiles and knew exactly who I was and had actually kept up with me and all that had gone on in my life. I was amazed!! For the next 2 years Faotta became a very important part of my life. Faotta and I talked about everthing, and I mean everthing, as girlfriends do. I loved taking Faotta to the Health Food Store after her Doctor's appointments. We often would drive thru Kentucy Fried Chicken on our way home from the Medical Center. I tried to talk Faotta into trying Chick-fil-a but she would have no part of that. Those of you who knew Faotta know she was a strong, opinionated woman. Faotta and I had a lot in common. We both had children pass away, we both had challenging marriages, she was much stronger than me, she stayed married, I divorced. We both loved to garden and eat healthy, organic foods. We both are strong, opinionated women who love the Lord with all our hearts, souls and minds. I'll never forget one day when Faotta wasn't feeling well and I asked her if she would like me to read out of the Bible to her. She smilled and said, "Oh, please read Revelation to me." I thought to myself, of all the books in the Bible, she would pick Revelation!! Needless to say, I read the whole book to her. I'm sure I did not pronounce all the words correctly, but Faotta didn't mind. She loved to talk about Heaven and what Heaven was going to be like. We made a deal one day that if she went to Heaaven before me, that she would find my son, Webb and give him a big hug and kiss from me and if I went to Heaven before her I would find her daughter, Karen and do the same. Faotta was also looking so forward to having her REAL teeth in Heaven. I am smiling right now knowing Faotta is with my son and all her family and friends smiling, showing off her new set of REAL teeth. I love you and will miss you greatly, Faotta!!! xoxoxo, Kelly Killough
