I am sorry to hear of Frances’ passing. I have fond memories of times together growing up, especially when we all were living in Alabama. My prayers are with the family during this difficult time. May God give comfort as only He can. Sorry I can’t come, but I was on my way with my daughter to Atlanta, GA. Love y’all
