To all my cousins, my sincere sympathy for the pain of of losing your dear mother. I have so many memories of my Dear Sweet Aunt Frances who is now reunited with the love of her life, my Uncle Bob. When I last saw her two years ago , she looked up at me and said I know you, your Marie's boy Sammie, it gave me great joy knowing she remembered me. I'm sure my mother, Marie and Bob were there to greet her with open arms. Her spirit and memory will continue to exist in all her children and grand children. Love you Aunt Frances.

My wonderful Aunt Frances leaves a legacy of kindness, love, passion about her family including her nieces and nephews. Her love and joyful laughter will always be remembered. She has walked on that milky staircase to meet our Lord. She is smiling because she is now with Uncle Bob again. Her loved ones that went before her Marie Sullivan, Corky Hunt, Dorothy Bauermeister Austin and my son Larry Parker. Our angels have surrounded her with an abundance of love.
With much love and many wonderful memories from all of us..
Love you
