Karen, My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this time, your mom taught me so much about love and I will always cherish the time we spent at your home during Christmas with my grandchildren- she truly explained the real meaning of Christmas to the kids - I feel very blessed to have met an angel on earth!

I'm so sorry to hear about the passing of Mrs. Frances. She was one of my favorite people and so was Pastor Lethcoe. We are members of Virginia Avenue Baptist in Bristol and always loved to see them visit. Mrs. Frances & I had a shared love of angels. I never got to see her angels in person, but she told me of the ones she loved and why. And she loved telling me that she had angels in her bathroom. Our love, thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Terry, Lisa & Preston White Bristol TN

I am so sorry for your loss. I loved your sweet Mother. She taught me so much about so many things. I see floral arrangements and think Francis could teach that arranger something! She was a great example of God's love to all
