We have known Francis for many years and have had the privilege many times of working with her on real estate transactions during her career in real estate. She was always a delight to work with and served her clients with dedication and hard work. We were so saddened to learn of her passing.
We have known many of her extended family members for many years including her husband Fred and wish to express our deepest sympathies to her family at this time of loss. May she rest in peace.

We were sorry to hear of your Mother's passing. It was a joy to visit with her at Stonebridge. I know she is happy and probably getting back to painting the beautiful things she is seeing in heaven.

So sorry to hear of Aunt Frances' passing only 10 days after her sister Vivian (my mother) left us. Our condolences to the family. I will not be able to attend the funeral due to a medical situation concerning my wife but rest assured our thoughts and prayers will be there with you.

Jeff and Jill, So sad to hear of your mom's passing. When our girls lived in Bloomington years ago, we'd sometimes run aross Uncle Fred and Aunt Frances doing their laps around the mall there. We always enjoyed talking with them. I'll always remember your mom's beautiful smile! May you be comforted knowing she's no longer suffering. - Susie & Roy

So sorry to hear about your mother. My mother sat at her table and was so fond of her. I didn't know her well, but she was always smiling when I saw her. Her paintings were beautiful, she was very talented. She will be missed.

I was on the computer and just now saw where your Mom passed on. I am so sorry, I didn't know about it.
My love is with you and your family, and my love goes with your Mom. I loved her too.

Jill & Terry and family,
I'm sorry to hear about your mom's passing. Although we all know such things are inevitable, it is still hard to deal with missing our loved ones. Of course it's been some time since I've personally talked with her but she was always a kind, sweet, and very gracious woman. Your whole family reflects similar values and qualities which I highly admire and respect. Am sorry that I can't make the viewing as have a prior committment tomorrow evening as well as continuing education class on Wednesday but my prayers and thoughts are with you at this time.
