I am so sorry for your loss. Frances was a wonderful, talented lady. I enjoyed time with her when she volunteered at Cannon, as well as when she was with Don at board functions. You are in our prayers.

First of all I’m so sorry for your families loss. Before Covid I had helped Vickie at her shop when she had difficulty after breaking her knee. I had met Francis when Tracy was still doing her hair. she was such a sweet lovely lady. when she began coming to VickieI I-rolled her hair many Fridays. Vickie would ask me to take her home. I met Mr. Moore several times also and Vickie would cut his hair. Today Vickie told me of her passing I was so very sorrowful! I thought it was so great they both were in their 90. May God bless your family and may His loving aSpirit comfort you at this time. Sincerely Frankie Bryant Sending prayers and much love during this sad time..

Don and family, I have good memories of Mrs. Moore, warmly known as Frances. Every time I saw her she was always pleasant. Since we lived "around" the curve for many years, it was not uncommon to see her in the yard, and most often Don was also within sight. My thoughts and prayers are with the family and we have another reason to look toward that GREAT reunion day.

Frances always made me feel at home whether it was at the house or at the lake. I learned a few of her cake baking tricks, but could never decorate them as beautifully as she did.
