We express our sincere sympathy to Rosalie, Hearshel and the family during this difficult time. Even though many miles separated us, I have been able to keep in contact with Aunt Frances through phone calls and cards. We have had many long phone calls which I will dearly miss. She was a wonderful Christian lady and a great aunt to all of us. I am also grateful that through her illness, Rosalie and I have been able to become closer and I sincerely hope that I was able to be of some comfort to her through her mother's passing. Her brother, Thurman, will miss his baby sister very much. He loved her dearly. Love, Thurman, Alice, Jim, Tom, Tammy and Andrew

Dear Rosalie, Hearshel, and family,
Just a note to express my sympathy to you all on the death of Aunt Frances. She was such a beautiful Christian lady and I'm sure you'll miss her very much. I always enjoyed her letters and phone calls and will miss her as well. The picture gallery brings back many memories - you did a good job of selecting just the right pictures to honor your Mom, Rosalie. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all at this time. Love, Martha, Paul and family (Kirkwood, PA)
