TO THE FAMILY,
May you find comfort in God's words at Revelation 21:4 "he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more" GOD promises that if we put full faith in the ransom by Jesus Christ we will reap these blessings in the future.. Soon you will be able to see your loved ones again without fear of ever loosing them again my thoughts are with at this time!

We will remember how she would light up just to see us come. She was so positive about life ,deeply devoted to all of her family, church and friends and eager to show pictures of all her beautiful grandchildren. Aunt Frances and Uncle W C were an amazing team living the life God gave them with dignity and grace. They will not be forgotten!
Love and prayers,
Joyce and Everette Frye
