I recall Francis very well as she and my sister, Virginia Oliver, were great friends and our family sometimes visited with the Bradleys on Sunday afternoons. And,also knew Roger and her in adult life , he once had a body shop next door to my folks; Ford and Gladys Oliver on Siloam Rd. She and Roger both were such fine examples for my younger generation. I am very sorry to hear of your loss and may your family be blessed and guided through this loss.

Frances and I taught at NGA for many years, and she was always helpful to me and others. You don't meet many really, really genuine nice people in this life, but Frances fit the bill.
