Frances will be missed. She has been an inspiration to so many. I thank God that I had the pleasure of knowing her. Because of her influence the world is a better place. We will never know until we get to Heaven how many lives she has touched. Praise God for people like Frances that stand up and live for what they believe.
To the family, you have been truly blessed to have been a part of her life.
We will all meet again, what a promise Jesus has given to those that love Him.
God Bless You All...
