Thank you everyone for the kind words. As we all try to deal with our loss, it is helpful to read your comments and stories you have all shared. Thank you to everyone who came out to the service on December 16th. It was so nice to meet some of Frances' friends and former co workers, and hear how she has touched your lives,in sommany special ways. Frances was a special, kind, patient and thoughtful person. It was a pleasure to spend time with her and to have her visit with us. She was always so helpful, appreciative, and so easy to please. At the cottage she always enjoyed going for a boat ride with Drew. This summer I convinced her to go out in the canoe with me. It was her first time canoeing and she really enjoyed it. We had a great time in November making pizzas and muffins, and her creation, piña colada muffins (pineapple & coconut), were delicious. I will miss her company and all the games of scrabble we used to play. We were well matched opponents...always a close game. I will miss Frances dearly as I know you all will. Thinking of her fondly this Christmas. Again, it was nice to meet you all, and perhaps we will see you again at the internment on January 26th. It would be comforting to connect with you all again.
Even though we only saw Frances on special occasions like our family BBQ, Christmas and the cottage on Lake Clear she was always smiling and willing to participate in our games and enjoy life. She will be remembered by all of us here and sorely missed. A kind sweet soul has left left us but will always be in our hearts and minds.
