Mae Frances was a very special person and more importantly a second mother to me and my siblings. I wish the family all Gods comfort during her transition to be with the Lord and to reunite with Johnny.

I am sending condolences on behalf of my family which includes a son-in-love, Glendon Williams to the Sanders family. Mrs. Sanders has always been a very kind and friendly person, I remember her kindnesses solving issues at the cleaners. She will be remembered for her character, integrity and dedication. Those who live in faith to God will be able to rejoin her in her heavenly home. Blessings to all!
