I remember my Auntie Francy as fun-loving. I remember swimming with her at Bean Lake. I remember she had a hot dog stand at the camp and I helped her sell them. I remember being in her 4th grade class for a day and being inspired to teach along with my Mother's,her sister Helen, advice. I'll always remember her singing with her sisters, Pauline and Mother. I'm so glad they had many memorable trips together. I'll miss deeply. her loving niece,Debby

As I remember my dear Auntie Francy, I think of the hymn, ON EAGLES' WINGS. She once asked me to sing it at her funeral. I can only imagine she is now singing it with her dear sisters, Pauline and Helen (my precious Mother) and a choir of Angels. How glorious! I will miss her but will always have the image of her smiling eyes and infectious laugh in my heart. Her loving niece, Susan Phillips, Spring,TX
