I am sorry to hear of Frances passing. I delivered her Christmas basket the last several years from the Harlan Lions and the community. I always enjoyed talking to her and she seemed to have plenty to say every year and plenty of questions for me. It was a blessing to know her and spend just a little time with her every December. I looked forward every year to deliver her basket.
