Frances,so sorry to hear about your mom. Heaven's dearer each and every day. Maybe she'll see my mom Up There.

Doodle, I was so sorry to hear about your mom, but we know she is in a better place. I know you will miss her a lot but you will always have the memories and pictures. I am sorry that I missed the funeral but had all intentions in going until I fell and hurt myself. So sorry. We love you, Izell and the whole family.

Doodle, (forgive me, but I will always think of you as Doodle!)I am so sorry for the loss of your mother and for Izell losing his dear companion. Frances was always a ray of sunshine and so very cheerful!! She actually was the primary mother figure to my daughter, Brenda Spence(Brenda Tadlock now) when I worked. Most everyone thought Brenda was Frances's own child because they both had that beautiful auburn hair. Frances and I use to tease each other about how much we weighed back then. It seems like (because of her quick wit) that she good naturedly always somehow got the better of me. She loved getting out early in the morning and picking beans, peas, or whatever happened to be growing in our garden at the time. Izell and Frances were very generous by allowing us park our mobile home on their property off Springhill Road in Tallahassee. She and Izell helped us so much and I will always be grateful to them. You, on the other hand, Miss Doodle were always mischievious and getting into things! There was a lot of love in the Story home and I will always remember their generosity at a time when we really needed their help. The pictures on this site are beautiful especially the ones showing her hands that are worn with wrinkles from helping others, comforting others, and holding others during their grief and joys. I loved your mom and still love you and Izell very much. The Story family really enriched my life as I am sure it has so many others! When I picture your mom, I still see her smiling broadly and popping that gum at times. Much love to you and Izell!
A dear saint, one I look forward to meeting me in heaven!
