My prayers are with the family of a wonderful lady. I will miss her and so will all of us at Popes Chapel. Even though she has been unable to attend Popes Chapel in awhile she has not been forgotten and neither has her chocolate pies.

Such a beautiful lady. Always graceful & kind. I’m so happy that you’re now free to be with your boys & Wm Lee again. Jean they’re just a whisper away. If anyone deserves a crown in heaven it’s your mom. She was the most beautiful lady to me & I loved her dearly.

My Dearest Jean,
It is with heartfelt love & true condolences that I send to you & your family my sympathy in the loss of your mother but also know that she is free of the suffering of this life & has taken on a ‘new life’. Bessie was like a sister to me for so many years & I shall forever cherish the years that I spent with Uncle Grady & Aunt Eunice’s Family after my father was killed when I was 5 years old. They always treated me like their other sister & I was truly blessed.

God bless you & yours. You have really taken wonderful care of your Mom & shall surely be rewarded by our Father in Heaven.
Much Love, Clara W. Frazier
