Although I have memories of her too numerous to count, I am so appreciative of the kindness she showed me. Whenever I sang, she would always give me positive feedback and a kind word. I thank God for having known her and you have my sincere condolences. May God continue to be with you.
Much Love In Christ, Kay Henry-Cook

Hello Gertrude. My deepest condolences to you and your family. Isn't it funny how we ended up seeing each other after 20+ years when we worked together at JC Penney?!! I wanted to extend my condolences to the rest of the family as well. I never met Frances but what I did see, she was an extraordinary lady. Life will be tough, remain strong.

Your in my thoughts and prayers,

Lilly Gonzalez
