Dolores and I have been best friends since 6th grade. Miss Frances was like my second mother because mine was always working and basically a single parent at the time. I remember once Frances took "Lois" and I shopping. We used to think it a grand thing to dress alike. So, when we found two outfits exactly alike in our sizes, we wanted them. But, I did not have enough money with me. Miss Frances called my mom and asked if she could loan me the money using the store's phone...no cell phones back then! And so I got my outfit, just like my best friend, all because of Miss Frances. Forever in my memories, always in my heart. I am sorry I cannot be there for you today. Love, Brenda Smith Kuykendall
