I left the Roanoke area in 1961. Growing up I always saw the five beautiful Neices of Uncle Frank. He was my Uncle too. But all of you know that. Sad to say we also met at funerals. I am sorry that I wasn't at this one. I would have loved to have seen all of you again. Miles seperate many people, but thanks to our memories we can still enjoy our good times together. I last saw Mary Frances at David Spences memorial. Sort of ironic, but he married my wife's sister, Pam. Marie, I probably knew you best of all the sisters, but I will never forget all of the others.
These past few days have been a sad time for me but has also brought back many good memories in my life that has included Mary Frances. We begin our path of learning thru out the 12 yrs. of school. We went to summer camp for the 1st time together, We doubled dated and Mary Frances was one of the attendants in our wedding - but the most wonderful time is the night we both felt the amazing grace of our Lord Jesus Christ and trusted Him as our Saviour following that with being baptized together. So I'm very thankful that Mary Frances has been apart of life thru 56 years and I feel truly blessed because of this. Proverbs 18:24
I found it a priviledge to know your Mom - from starting 1st grade together - to going to camp 1st. time together - to going all the way thru school and graduating together - and she was one of my bridesmaid when and I married and most important we both heard the call to receive Jesus Christ on the same night when we were around 12 yrs.old and then baptisted at the same time. I have counted her as one of precious and long time friends. God bless you. Hebrews 4:16

Lisa and Kim,
May God wrap his loving arms around you now in your time of need. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your families.
Kim,Lisa and family
I mourn with you the loss of such a wonderful mother & a special friend. I will always have warm memories of our times together. High school reunion weekends and our annual meetings in Roanoke. Shopping & having lunch at the Market Square will never be quite the same.
May Loving Memories bring you Comfort.
