Guest Book

“So very sad to hear of Fay´s passing, Johanna & I had the pleasure of knowing Fay between 2015 -2021 having met her when we purchased our property on Perico Island, Bradenton. We traveled frequently to Florida from our home in Stockholm, Sweden and our first point of contact was always Fay. We enjoyed her fantastic humor, her wit and not least her love of life. We will miss her dearly and always have her in our thoughts RIP Fay Michael, Johanna, Liam & Emmy. Stockholm Sweden”
