Jim & family,I, along with so many others, were shocked to hear of the sudden death of Frances. She has been a life-long friend through church, 4-H, and high school. Our class of 1966 has been greatly blessed by the leadership that Frances has provided for our many reunions. She always provided both support and encouragement. I know Frances has transitioned to a life that we all hope to attain when life on this earth is over. I also know your family will have adjustment to life without her. Please be assured that her spirit will live on in the lives of those whom she influenced. I do pray for comfort and peace as you face the days ahead. Wishing I could be there in person but know you are part of a wonderful family of God at Mt. Gilead who will surround you with love and support. God bless! Sincerely, Junior High
