I became good friends with Frances, when we moved to Clark St, Mad Hgts That was in the early seventies , she would come over and visit with all of us, we would laugh, talk and had a great friendship. She and I would catch the city bus, go to the Plaza and downtown to shop during the day. Then about two months ago her Granddaughter Nikki and my daughter-in-law Celia came to visit and out rolled Francis, Dennis and I really enjoyed her visit and talked about old times, she laughed, said how much she enjoyed her visit with us . She was a very sweet woman and will surely be missed.❤️
