One of the greatest ladies I ever knew. She was a true friend to my family and my mama and daddy loved her and Mr. Quincy. They were like family to us and were always there for us. Ms. Frances is the last of our elders in Oliver. I don't know anybody in Oliver anymore. So sad that a generation is now gone. Larry and Karen can know that they made her last few years easier by being with her. Truly a good son, Larry. Much love to the family. Helen Smith Sweeney
