Thoughts and memories of the years gone by. we had some fun along the way. -relaxing by the pool at the appartments-going to apple hill,Murphys,Florida,the family reunions. remember the proposal at the german resturant,looking for rings,searching the wedding shops,getting married at the Ponderosa ranch,honeymooning at the Lure at Downeyville and fishing from the deck there. We had quite the ranch at home with horses,goats,chickens and pigs--even a colorful peacock named Henry.-not to mention the basset hounds and cocker spaniels we had over the years. Most recently the animals consisted of a cat, a procostumus(14 inch long cleaner fish) and of course BRUTESSA the Chihuahua that really rules over hearth and home!!!
with love from your husband Boyd
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
Fran, I've thought about you every day since you've been gone. Your loyal friendship of 45 years means so much to me. I will miss your laugh, your wonderful sense of humor, emails, but most of all our friendship. I will never forget the happy times we shared together and will always keep you in my thoughts and prayers. You will be very much missed.
Rest in peace dear friend.
My dear cousin, Frances, We were so very saddened when we learned of your untimely death. We know for you,that the journey to God's heaven will be an unbelievable reunion! We can only imagine the wonder of it all! We pray blessings to be with all the loved ones left to grieve your loss: Boyd; Steve and family; Linda, Tom and family; and all the family & friends who hold you dear. We will miss you greatly! Willaine & John Paul Hankins
goodby to my loving master of 4 years--thanks so dearly for all the love and affection you gave me. it was the best home of all and we certainly enjoyed those late morning walks where i could sniff the grass, chew on some pinecones, and explore our vast domain. my new master,Boyd, is very loving also. fear not--i get run of the house, am warm and toasty, and lay at the head of the bed by day and sleep under the covers by night.
love and kisses, your Chihuahua, Brutessa
It has been an amazing 24 years together. You changed my life from being alone to having a wife and son, as well as an extended family on the East coast. You kept the household in order,arranged the vacations, and decorated the house inside and out. I will relish those memories of trips to Florida, N&S Carolina, Tennasee, apple hill, Jenner by the Sea, and that first cruise to Alaska.
You are my only true love for all these wonderful years and will remain so forever. We will be going soon to the Alaskan cruise you have already arranged and paid---travel to Seattle,motel stay, parking, and booked side trips at Juneau, Kodiak, Homer, and Anchorage. So this will be YOUR trip. I will throw some flowers in the sea by the glaciers to remember you by........ Bon Voyage
your loving husband, Boyd
Society tells us not to dwell on the past live for the future. I can't speak for everyone, nor would I want to however I have learned to accept the past and live life on day at a time.
The past is not forgotten but rather is where I find my memories. It's true I can't change the past, but the past doesn't have to change me or you.
Today we are honoring someone from our past. "my mom". She provided each of us with different memories. Those memories from the past are what keep her spirt alive with us in the future.
She was a loving mother, wife, grandmother, sister and friend.
Friday night march 16th was the last time I would have to spend with my mom. This is also one of my best memories.
My memory looks like this, as if to show a feeling of peace, my mom rises from her 2nd floor hospital bed. She tells her family lets go for a walk. I then see the sight which will forever live in my memory. She leaves her room with a roll around medical cart in one hand, and her granddaughter Brianna's in the other. We walked a full circle around the 2nd floor.
The one word I think would fit my mom is "strong"
She was a woman that was very strong, and didn't leave us with out a fight.
It's this word that I will use in my future to honor my mom, and will make her proud.
My mom passed away march 17th peacefully, feeling loved by each one of us. Her husband at her side, in her bed with her dog.
My father passed away 3 years ago, in spite of that painful time I was comforted by the fact I had my mom, and especially her husband, my stepfather Boyd.
This man, accepted me as his own, treated my mother like a queen from day one. He supported my mother in any direction she went. He taught me a lot of things I know. If I had to pick a person to fill his shoes; could not come close. Thank you Boyd from the bottom of my heart for providing the life you have for my mother and I.
Love and miss you mom. Rest in peace!
My new friend who was taken from me, saden my heart, you carry the name and the looks of my first wife, the angels have you now and they will keep you in there arms forever,,,,,I will miss you,,,,,,,,fb , herman
"Grammy, I miss you a lot and I love you. I hope you are feeling better now and your doing lots of fun things in heaven like playing baseball and watching Sandlot.
Bye Grammy love you, Bruce"
My sweet dear sister and best friend. How were we to know that Thursday morning, March 15, 2012, as we enjoyed our usual conversation, said our "Love you" and "bye", that it would be our last? I will miss you so much but I know that now you will not suffer as you did on earth. You're in a much better place with mama, granny and all the loved ones. I'll always have my memories of our life together. I love you my sister.
Frances, Oh my, I can only imagine the reunion in Heaven you are experiencing, and I'm still looking forward to. You're meeting for the first time your Grandma McDaniel and seeing your Mom and Grandma Grace again. A happy time. I'll miss our reunions with you here. Love you cousin.
Aunt Fran, You were a very sweet and loving person. We will miss you. Uncle Boyd, Steven and extended family your in our thoughts and prayers. God Bless you all. Aunt Fran is in a better place with God and family. Love you all Debbie & Tom Cimo Jr., Tommy 3, Kayla, Gage, Brittany & Sean
We were so looking forward to future get togethers. Now we must all past the tests you have already aced. Save us a place to have our further reunions
DEAR BOYD & FAMILY,
FRANCES' LEGACY IS FILLED WITH LOVE FOR FAMILY AND FRIENDS, HER LIFE AN EXAMPLE OF GOD'S GOODNESS. SHE WILL BE MISSED, BUT HER MEMORY WILL LIVE ON FOR ALL OF US. GOD BLESS AND KEEP YOU IN HIS CARE ALWAYS.
AUNT BESS, MARTHA JEAN & FAMILY
Our prayers for Frances and family.
Good bye from a fellow Brewsterite.
Franci, you are going to be missed by all that knew you, one of the sweetest ladies I have ever known, always a kind word about everyone, I hope God lets you email us once in a while, I'm sure you are already making new friends, and finding old friends....
Tom Rose (Pinellas Park, Fl.)
Fran, I will miss our long talks on the phone. Adrian and I will miss your daily emails, dinner out with you and Boyd, and most of all your friendship. You were the best hairdresser in the world. You are in a much better place now. You are in the arms of Jesus. Our thoughts and prayers go out to your family. Love, Debbie & Adrian
Fran, you will be missed by so many friends and people who were fortunate enough to just know you. I'll miss those chats when you "lowered my ears" (haircuts) over the past 19 years. I'll miss your humor and your laugh whenever we discussed politics. So I'll have to wait until we meet again at Fran's heavenly salon to get my "ears lowered again". No more pain now, just God's restful peace.
Frannie what can I say, I am in a fog I really believe this is a BAD dream. My heart feels like it is being torn out of my chest. I am missing you so much. I am remembering all the birthday and Christmas luches at the Sequoia. I Love you so much that will never go away. My very bestest friend always.
Carol and Don Phillips
You will be missed and remembered by all who knew you!! My condolences to your family and friends. Love always. Sharon Bentley Brito
Franci, I am going to miss our daily exchange of emails. You were a true friend and we will all miss you. May the Good Lord give her family and friends peace and comfort.
You were the best second mom a daughter could ask for. I will miss our Saturday breakfast's and family trips. You were always there anytime I needed you and always full of sound advise. Bruce and I Love you and will miss you dearly.
Dearest Friend of over 50 years, so loved and so loving. Words can not express my pain at losing you my sweet friend. You will be missed by all who knew you and loved you. You are in the arms of Jesus and the angels. Loving You always!
