Sad news, sad day

The rain is appropriate for today. Got this from my friend Faith's husband in my email this morning. I can't stop crying.

With the deepest sadness, I regret to inform you of the passing of my wife and best friend Faith Marguerite Ingraham Allenegui On May 9th at 2:30 AM

Faith was born in Monterey, California and graduated Valedictorian Window Rock High School, Class of 1981, Fort Defiance, Arizona.

She was a member of the National Honor Society, Big Sisters and joined the United States Air Force in 1987.

Early in her career, as a Radio and Satellite Communications Technician she was recognized as Airman of the year for all of Korea.

She joined marches in the fight against AIDS, was active in the PTA, and was one of the first certified military counselors of Financial Peace University in Europe.

As a Craftsman of Information Management, she gained respect as resident expert in Computer Security for NATO Regional Headquarters of Northern Europe. Brunssum, Netherlands.

Her latest duty assignment was as the training liaison for Foreign Military Sales, United States Embassy, London, England.

At home, she was a beautiful and intelligent wife, an incredible nurturing Mother,
avid gardener and had a sense of humor like no other.

She is survived by her husband of 16 years, currently residing at Travis Air Force Base, California Sons Jonathan of Tucson, Arizona and Elijah of Travis AFB, and Daughters, Madeline and Aimee, both of Travis AFB.

Her Father, Earnest E. Ingraham of Eureka, California, and sisters Scarlett of Fairbanks Alaska, Hope Ingraham of Arcata, California, and Charity Ingraham of Alameda, California Her beloved Grandmother, Laura Ludlum, of Eureka, California, joined Faith 12 hours later.

She is predeceased by her Mother Joyce E. Ingraham and Father-in-law, Duane C. Allenegui.

Our lives, and certainly the world, will be empty without her.

A celebration of her life will be held on her 44th Birthday, 26 May at 11:00 AM at the Central Chapel on Travis AFB followed by a birthday celebration in her honor.

Please send any cash donations to the American Cancer Society in her name.

JH, I too was very sad to hear about Faith. Faith was a great friend and classmate, class of 1981 Window Rock High School. We were also lab partners for our Jr. High Science Fair. Faith did have a great sense of humor, I will always cherish the memories.

I donated $100 to the American Cancer Society in Faith's memory. It's the least I could do.
