I am a personal friend of her son Joe Don and have come to learn of her through him. A life well lived and a beautiful person who is now at great peace in the hands of our lord in the place he has built for us all since our unique creation. How wonderful. May God bless you all as you move through these days.
I worked several years with Frances in Hereford, when Atmos Energy was then Energas. She was a wonderful friend. I truly enjoyed working with her. I am so sorry to hear of her passing.
