I am so heartbroken to hear about Frances.  She was such a lovely soul, full of love, character and wit.  I will certainly miss seeing her every month.  My thoughts and prayers are with the family. 

Frances was a wonderful long-time friend.  We are rejoicing her suffering is over, but we will miss her.  Nadine Chapman and Shirley Meador
