    Miss Frankie was such a blessing to our family. Having to leave my babies in the morning to go to work wasn’t easy, but knowing she was holding them when I left made my day. She gave my son a prayer bear that we hold near and dear to our hearts…just as she did with all of her daycare babies. We will miss you, but we know you are walking the streets of gold. Till we meet again!

    Frances, so sorry to learn of the loss of your sister. I lost my only sibling, my sister, to cancer almost 22-years ago now. I know how hard it is to let them go. Praying for you.
