This is June 5th 2012, a full year since you went home to heaven. Lots of things have changed since you left. Elton and Molly are now living in Brandon in Mama Gladys' old house. They're here to help take care of Jr. I know you'd be so pleased as to how your family has 'stepped up' to the plate! Dale, Libby, Jennifer, David and Little Dale have been "ROCKS" for your husband! They have shown him such care and attention. Roland and June have cooked supper for him every night since you left. And I try to keep him entertained by taking him on day trips. Sometimes little Dale will go with us. But every where we go, Jr. says, "I wish Frances was here to see this....she would have loved this!" He visits your grave every day and has planted grass on it so it looks beautiful. Libby keeps the flowers changed and fresh looking....changing them every season. So we're keeping things going without but it's been difficult. Dear Frances, you are truly missed by the entire family. And we all love you very much

I really wish I could have attended the services but even more so I wish I would have been able to visit with her. Aunt Frances was always so sweet and had such a contagious smile. She will be greatly missed. I love you Uncle J.R. and am praying for you and the family!
