An amazing woman, Frances, always. You will be missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with Buck and all who knew and loved you. Be at peace.
Buck I was sorry to hear of your mother`s passing. You have been truly blessed to have had such a kind and loving mother in your life.
Buck, I was so sorry to hear about your Mom`s death. When I saw you at Thanksgiving time you said that she`d had a stroke. For so many years, Frances & my Mom talked every day. Hard to believe that the short time they were roommates that they hardly knew one another! Perhaps now they will have alot of catching up to do. Frances was a sweet heart. I so enjoyed having a cup of coffee with her when she was still at home every time I was down for a visit. Thinking of you & your family.
