Dear Uncle Ralph, Mark, Gini, Kara and Lana,
I want you to know I am sorry for the loss of your wife and mom. I am grateful for the care and love you provided during her illness. And I am glad I got to see her at least for a little while in the spring. She had such grace. Her smile, such persistence, even when she was speaking clearly with conviction. I will always remember her for that.
We are all blessed because we knew her.
With love from all the NC Ledwigs
My grandmother was a fabulous lady and smart, funny,and loving! She will always be in my heart... I will never forget the time of playing with the dolls together! She was a great lady and it is and was so tough to see her go... She is now resting in peace and is to be loved eternally. I am the youngest grandchild but I still got to spend a very fulfilling life with her. I love all of my family especially my mom Kara, I am here to try and support her through this hard time.
Dear Ralph, Mark, Gini, Kara, and Lana,
I am so sorry for your loss and the grief you must feel in the loss of such a wonderful woman, wife and mother. During my years of working with Frances at DR I discovered her deep dedication to the Church, to thirst for progressive and broad theological thinking and her tremendous intellectual acuity. I appreciate those years especially with her and her lovely smile. She is released from the sufferings of these past years, such a gift to her on this Christmas Day. I wish you blessings from her legacy of strength, courage and loving joy! With sadness and gratitude for Frances' life, Sister MT, Sister Coach and just plain MT
I have such sweet memories of my Great Aunt Frances as well as Uncle Ralph and their wonderful children. She was such a sweet woman and I loved spending time with her at our reunions and catching up on life. I will always remember her as a lady with much grace and a beautiful smile! Sending love and prayers to you all from NC.
