Miss you Aunt Fran, give mom a hug for me.
Dear family, My prayers were finally heard as I fervently prayed for Fran's eternal journey to begin so she wouldn't linger in her discomfort. I regret that I couldn't come to visit her while she was in transition. I will certainly miss our evening curbside talks about our shared faith in our Savior, Jesus Christ. Fran also made great scones! My continued prayers for everyone in the family as preparations are finalized. God bless you! Sincerely, Dave & Effie Truver
