Our deepest sympathy to each family member. I enjoyed visits from 'Miss' Frances and Mr. Edward at the post office. They were always so nice and friendly. 'Miss' Frances had a cheerful attitude and smile. She will be missed.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

I have many memories of "Miss" Fran from living next to her on Union Point Hwy as a child. Always a cheerful smile and a fine person. Prayers going out to Terry and the entire family.

Aunt Fran was a sweet soul, enjoyed her family and was always sharing pictures of her grandchildren over the years when they came to visit. She will be missed by everyone, we all know she's without pain and heartache and with her Ed now resting in peace. Love
