I met Frances and Bill as a young child when I would go to work with my dad at Liberty Bell. I fell in love with them and kind of adopted them as my "grandparents". Frances was the sweetest woman I had ever met. I will always cherish the memories I had with her, and I will always remember the homemade German Chocolate cake she always made at Christmas. Martha, Sherry, and Luis my thoughts and prayers are with you during this tough time. But always cherish the sweet memories and rejoice in knowing that she is with Bill "Pappy" once again, looking down and smiling upon us everyday!
FRANCES was a very good school mate and a nice person. She will be missed by all who knew her. Our prayers are with family and friends
