Just found out tonight about little Frances' passing and am just heartbroken. She was always such a sweetheart and had such a wonderful sense of humor and personality. I always remember stopping by her grandparents store and thinking she was the cutest young girl with her pretty, curly hair and her glorious smile. I was just a kid at the time, but she was always so sweet to me. She will be so missed by everyone. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you now and in the days ahead. May God comfort and strengthen you with your wonderful memories of her and her love and His love for you.
