Ida Mae Francis(Wife, Mother, Nana, Friend)

In Loving Memory of Ida Mae Francis Wife, Mother, Nana, Friend It's been 5 years since God called you home. I can imagine you smiling and walking through those Pearly Gates, being greeted by those loved ones who were already there waiting for you. I could not believe you had to leave all of us. We were not ready to say goodbye. You were the center of our family, the glue that held us together. You taught us so many things about life. The most important lesson was how to love and how to be kind just as you were so loving and so kind. We all love and miss you very, very much. Until we see you again.
