Lucy and Belinda, my prayers are with you and the rest of your family during this difficult time...please take comfort in knowing that your mom is no longer suffering and is right now resting in the arms of Jesus. Frances was a dear friend of mine, but most of all she was my sister in Christ. We met while working at AFV, and I will forever remember her. She touched so many people's lives with her generosity, and we all loved her. I regret I was not able to make it to her funeral, but I am with you all in spirit this morning. God Bless You, and may God give you strength to carry on with beautiful memories! Linda Salas and family

When the soul reaches up above you think about all the stuff and those memories you use to have. Until you look down and see all of those sad faces. Its like time races through the heart not all of us are as smart as the ones from above. We recognize the love we have lost. We know you were flawless. When you were here on earth since birth you have been beautiful. We will still always feel your presence. When the rain falls its a sad day because we know your crying. When its sunny we know that your smiling and when there is a thunder storm we all know you are angry, but lately the birds have been chirping and the sun has been shinning and the leaves have been falling. Now that I read this poem to you I am feeling all of your love from above.
