Mrs. Frances was a rare gem and treasure to her family and friends.a lady of beauty inside and out and one who loved her Jesus.I know it has been a rough week for it took the angels a little extra time getting Mrs. Frances home ready. But now the battle is over and the Victory is won. The void is leaves behinds is a big one, but oh what a joy she brings to her Savior welcoming her home. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all
