    Prayers for Nicky and Felicia and family! Ms Francis’ beauty shop was a part of my childhood. She cut my hair and she cut and fixed my mom’s for many years. She was a wonderful lady!

    Dear Aunt Frances, you will be truly missed. You were the last survivor of the “Dollar girls”. You are now with Jesus and God The Father along with family and friends that went on before you. We love you Aunt Frances.
