Flint,Harry, and family, Frances was one of the most sweetest,kindest and most compassionate people I have known. I am truly blessed to have known her, and Elaine. As I told you, I sat with them at church for years, and we had many memorable fellowship moments. She loved her church, family, and extended family. She was truly a “Southern Lady” in every sense of the word. I was so glad I was the one who took the call, and helped transport her into the caring family of Hall-Wynne. God works in mysterious ways! I apologize for not attending the service, as I got a call about a permanent job, which I got, and am now employed at Duke. Frances would have understood, as she knew I was having a hard time finding a job. We had many uplifting conversations, and I believe we helped each other! She will be missed by many. What a joy it was to have known her! Take comfort in knowing that she, Matt, Elaine and other loved ones are rejoicing at the right hand of God.
