It was my sadness to hear that Ms. Frances had passed. She was truly a lovely lady and it was my pleasure to interview her and convince her it would OK for her to tell a little of her story to me. I am certainly glad I had the chance to meet her and speak with her before time no longer allowed.
You have my deepest condolences and those of us here at The Daily Record would like to express our sadness in your loss.
She was truly a gem and I so much enjoyed speaking with her and telling a small portion of her story.
God Bless and best wishes.
