I was so sorry to learn of Frances' passing. She was such a wonderful lady, that I am so happy I had the pleasure to know. I so enjoyed the opportunities I had to talk with her. I will certainly keep you in my thoughts and prayers.
With deepest sympathy,

There just isn’t an adjective big enough to describe what Frances meant to my mama, Lois Wyatt, and to me. They worked at Ford together for decades, and shopped at lunch every single day...mostly for Dawn and me. Truest, sweetest, best friends only begins to describe their relationship. Of late, Mama, almost 98, and I loved to meet Frances and Perry at the soda shoppe at Park Rd for hot dogs and cherry cokes. We will cherish the memories of those times. We are sending prayers of intercession for Perry, Brandon, and all of Frances’s family and friends. May God comfort us as we mourn our precious Nanny.

As the best friend that I could ever ask for, Frances was the best. She will be so missed, but never forgotten. Words can never express how much she loved her family. She truly gave her best to the people she loved.

I am so sorry to hear of Frances passing. She was the most loving, kind and generous person I have ever known. I enjoyed the times we spent together and our talks. I know she is in heaven and having no more pain. I am out of town getting treatment for an illness or I would be there. Prayers for you Perry and Brandon at this very difficult time..Love you all
