Frances was one of my favorite "old-timers"! I so appreciated and enjoyed her still-keen mind, joy and postive outlook even as her health failed, her love for the Lord and the Scriptures, and her grit and determination. I loved hearing the stories of her early years and consider myself blessed to have known her. 

My sympathy and prayers are with her family as you grieve her loss and celebrate her homegoing.
