Frances was known as a Proverbs 31 woman all the way. She loved her family and was always a brave, compassionate, and loving person no matter what she was going through. She was a loving sister and grandmother... and EVERYONE loved her. Due to her health, she would kiss people's hands as the way to show her love since she was unable to speak it beyond saying "I love you."
