Not sure what to say?

Charlie and family,
I was saddened to hear about Frances's passing. I deeply appreciate her and your dedication and and many years of unselfish service to the Lane Company. She was consistently upbeat and highly effective in her work. While I am sure family raned at the top of her priorities, she treated those with whom she worked with the same level of dignity as family. Thank you both for sharing those years with all who worked at Lane.

Nanan Frances was the sweetest grandma to all of her grandchildren & great grandchildren. She will be missed by all of us. She had a great relationship with God & is no doubt singing with him in Heaven! She was a wonderful wife & mother. We love you papa Charlie, aunt sha, mom, & family!
