Your mother was a very dear friend to my mother. She would come to pick her up to go to the senior center to eat and play cards. When our fathers were alive they got together all the time. I still can remember that laugh your dad had when they beat the women at cards. I'm sure they are probably playing now . God Bless your whole family. Eddie Myers Jr.

Please find comfort In the fact that your mom is no longer suffering, peace in knowing she is with family and God and loving memories to forever hold in your heart. Rest In Peace Aunt Fran.
