    Frances was my mother-n-law for 36 years and I loved her dearly. My fondest & funniest memory was when we braved the Black Friday sales one year. Woke up early, stood in line then held onto each other tight. Long story short we made it out and never went back to another Black Friday sale. You will truly be missed Frances, spread your wings and fly high. Next time I see a cardinal I will know it’s you to come visit. Love and miss you ❤️
