My deepest condolences on the loss of your beautiful mother. I worked with Frannie on 5th Floor at GWV. She was truly a beautiful person and a caring, kind nurse. May she Rest In Peace.

Cousins Jennifer and Crissy (and families), we are so sorry to hear this sad news. Aunt Frances was a class act who always had an encouraging word and pleasant demeanor to whomever she met. I and my brothers hold many fond memories of our early childhood and the countless joy Aunt Frances and Uncle Adam brought to our family. We celebrate that they are together again in God’s eternal grace. Peace to all of you as you go through this painful grief.
