Dear Janie and family,
I will be praying for you during this sad time.

We are praying for you all during this difficult time. Frances impacted many people during her life, perhaps more than she even realized. For years she ministered to the needs of others. She ministered with her voice, her words, and her actions-she lived a life of love. She will be missed. May God bless and comfort you.

Jeff, I did not know your Mom, but I am sure she was a wonderful lady. After all, she raised you, didn’t she? Praying you will be comforted by God’s loving arms.

Miss Frances was some of the glue that keeps Northside loving and praying. She was a godly woman inside and out. She loved her family, friends and her youth. She kept us in line, expected our best and was always there to cheer us on.
Oh, she and others fed us well all the time.
She will be missed here but I can tell you this, she has loved ones shes having a great time with right now.
Shes celebrating with many Northside folks as well as her grandson. Shes probably straightening a few things out up there as well. Chocolate cake everywhere.
We love you Ms. Frances.
You, my dear, will never be forgotten.

Mrs. Harris was a very sweet and kind lady. Some of my favorite memories of her was when she visited my church and sang with her daughter Janie and family. Praying for peace and comfort for family.
