Frances Preson was a very special lady. She came to Carthage, Texas back in 1996 to present an award to Mary Reeves. She had such kind words to say about Mary and Jim and for that I will be eternally grateful. My thoughts and prayer are with the family as I know she will leave a large void in their lives.
She was always very kind, to me, and I appreciated her, for that.
Our thoughts and prayers are with your family and friends.
None will ever match your kindness, grace or love for all who knew you. Rest in Peace dear Frances.
