Cherish the memories!! I can see Aunt Frances and Uncle John Adam at the Pomaria ball field right now. And stopping by to see my grandparents on Saturday afternoon with Uncle Mac and Aunt Vinnie on their way to Shealy's. Had to leave early so they would miss the crowd. We love all of ya'll and you are in our prayers.

I had not seen Mrs. Graham in years, but thought of her often. I will always remember her from family reunions and what a sweet lady she was. My deepest sympathy.

Aunt Frances was very special as were all our Aunts and Uncles, but I must agree with Marie, she made the best yeast rolls you could find in "these parts."

To those who loved her, I offer my sincere condolences. I met Miss Frances in 2007 and it was love at first sight! She had ~the best~ sense of humor and she made me laugh a lot ... especially when we'd sing silly songs. She was a gem of a lady. I've seen her in recent months and weeks ... and I always kissed her before I left, saying, "until the next time!" Miss Frances, until the next time ... xoxoxoxoxo and I love you so, so much! Thank you for sharing your wonderful gifts of kindness and exhibiting strength in adversity. You never lost that smile!

Gerald, Barbara Sue, Randy, Evelyn and families,
Sorry to hear of Mrs. Francis' passing. I knew this weekend that it probably wouldn't be long. She can be at peace now with no more suffering. At 96 she has lived a fruitful and loving life. Gerald and Barbara guess Mrs. Francis was leaving us when we were in James' office this morning.
