Hi Nancy,
I was so sorry to read of this. I know your mom was very special because she produced a very special family. My thoughts are with you.

Just about every time I went to visit people at Sharon Towers, I would run into Frances Anderson. She was a delightful lady with a lot of personality and charm. Mrs. Anderson seemed to really enjoy people. We would run into each other at Myers Park Presbyterian as well. She enjoyed the sermons and the minister's way of relating to all of us.
To the family of Mrs. Anderson, I am very sorry for your loss. I am thankful that I had the chance to know her.
