I loved each opportunity I had to talk with Francine ... usually about The Munnerlyn line. It was like we had always been in touch! She was an amazing lady. Blessings to all of her family.

Bookie will live in my heart forever. She treated me and my brother and sister as there own nieces and nephew not as step kids. From the first time we came to visit we felt like family. We love you all and we will be praying for all as you go through this troubled time.

Brenda, Russell, Teresa ... I am so sorry about your mom. I loved my Aunt Francine. She was so full of knowledge. She loved music and was a gifted pianist. She enjoyed sharing her life experiences with people and could hold their attention with beautiful words and images. I enjoyed her stories about “the old days“. She was a gracious and kind person. She was a true lady. Rest now, Aunt Françine. I always loved you.
