She was a big part of my young life, she was a beautiful sweet lady inside & out! I remember as a teenager my parents would bring in the new year with LaFrancis & Glenn, and other couples. When we gave each other hugs, it was always special & sincere! My life was Blessed to have had LaFrancis in it. I dread telling my 93 yr old Dad about her passing. I love you, RIP!

Cindy, the first time I met your mom (about 50 years ago), I came home and told my mother that she was the most beautiful lady I had ever met. And at 90 years old, I still agree with my first impression. I love you and your family. Brenda Stringer.

We at Slap n Good BBQ will miss her sweet smile. She would pull up to the restaurant and honk for us to come out to get her order. She was a great support to us. She's been coming to get bbq since we started in our concession trailer. She always encouraged us. Mrs. Sloan will be dearly missed by many of us in the city of Kemp

Cindy & family,
I am so sorry to hear this. When i moved to Kemp forty one years ago Lafrances was one of the first ladies i met. She was always so kind. I loved hearing her play the organ at church. She was a beautiful lady in every way. I know all of you will miss her so much. Sending prayers of comfort and peace at the loss of your dear Mother and Grandmother. I know her wings are simply stunning!
