I first met Frances when I used to be with the Wednesday MOMO dance Classes. I use to see her when going home from my art class at IDAS, but only once a while. Usually the 2nd or 3rd Thursday. RIP Frances. You will be sadly missed.

Francis was a great friend. She was a good self-advocacy person. She liked to give cards for all occasions to all people. She will be dearly missed. She will be up in heaven looking down on everyone wishing them well.

I first met Frances when I joined The Action Hall. I was shy and uncomfortable and so I would go and sit (or stand) with Frances. Being with Frances felt safe and comfortable and welcome. I danced with Frances for many years when she was with MoMo. She was open and free and everyone wanted to dance with her. I feel privileged to have had so many years to dance with and know Frances. What a special, special, loving person! The world is not the same without her.

I met Frances at Vecova where she volunteered with the preschool programs that I used to facilitate. She loved the kids and especially loved babies. The kids loved having her there and were disappointed if she missed a day usually due to her busy schedule. Painting was her favorite activity and she made many pictures.
She was a very thoughtful person and was always making cards for people. That included all the kids im my programs. She never missed valentine's day or Christmas cards.
She volunteered with me for about 8 years. I learned a lot from her about kindness and patience. She will be missed.

I know Frances through Vecova. She was loved by everyone who knew her. I used to help her do her Xmas card list. We would do a list of 20 people to keep her budget down but it always increased to over 40 as Frances would keep adding more people. I have so many wonderful memories of Frances. She loved helping people. She made cookies for seniors at a Senior's Club, she filled food hampers for needy people at her church. My most fondest memories are of her love for children. Her face lite up anytime she was around children. I remember her volunteering at a daycare and at the Vecova Preschool which was always the highlight of her day. I cherish these memories and so many more. I am so sad and I will miss you Frances.
