What a beautiful and gracious lady! Every time I have seen here I leave feeling so blessed. She always asked about Jacque and let me know that she prayed for me. I will see her again in glory!

Thinking of you and Fran. Loved your mother and received so much love from her in return. Her knitted Christmas stockings will continue to hang from our mantel for each of our families for years to come.
