Condolences to R.C., Amy and Lyn. I am so sorry to hear of Aunt Frans passing. Please know you and your families are in our prayers. Unfortunately I will be working and unable to attend the memorial service. I have so many wonderful memories of Aunt Fran and she was loved by all who knew her. Love to you all and deepest sympathies.

So sorry for your loss. Fran was a beautiful person inside & out. Remember in our younger years what a good nurse she was for Dr. Vickers. Will always remember the funny times shared taking Algebra at ESJC with Dr. Lewis as teacher. She had such a wonderful sense of humor!

We were so sorry to hear of Fran's passing. We only knew her for a little while
after we met on the recent trip to Mt Rushmore. We enjoyed our friendship and were
looking forward to doing other things with both of you. We will miss her very much
and consider both of you as very treasured friends. Know that you and your family
are in our thoughts and prayers.

Dear Dr. Lewis, Amy, and Lyn,

We are so sorry for your loss of Ms.Frances. We were sad to hear of her passing while my family was out of town. You have been in my thoughts and prayers all week.
When I would see her around town she was always so kind to ask about my family. She always had a smile on her face. My heart breaks for you because I know there will be difficult days ahead. But I also know you can rejoice in knowing she is with our Lord and your memories of her will comfort you until you meet again.

With deepest sympathy,

Amy, Sam, Eleanor & David Covington

So very sorry for your loss. My prayers go out to your family. May God comfort and give the peace of knowing one day you can go rejoin her in Heaven. Mr. Lewis you may not remember me, but I have enjoyed your teaching Sunday School many times with my sister, Marilyn Baxter.
