Granny was unlike any other grandmother there is. Her devotion to Jesus and her family is stronger than any bond there could be. I can only one day aspire to become the mother, wife, sister, and woman my sweet Granny Frances was. I know she and Granddaddy Pete are already working on their own garden up in Heaven! Rest In Peace Granny Frances! We love you so much.
