Nan, Rhonda and family: My heart breaks as I read this obituary. But my lips form a smile, remembering all the great times that Frances and I shared over the years. The fun times we shared at "'Mr. Steele's lake cabin" and her over-the-road stories with "B", and her calls to Carl "to come fix or do something at the Apartments". Her shopping trips to Lennox Mall, where she would buy blouses, skirts, pants, etc, all the same style, but one in every color; then a couple days later, back to the same store to return all but one or two. You would think just looking in her closet, that you were "on the floor of a high end, ladies boutique". This Lady knew how to shop and was always was elegantly dressed and coiffed. Lost touch when I moved away from the Buford area Our last "visit" was when you (Nan) and Frances came to visitation when Tom passed away 2001. Afterwards, our phone calls and visits became fewer and far between😥. She was a beautiful soul, a lady and true friend, whom I loved and admired. Carl passed away in 2018, bet she's 'up there', telling Carl what needs to be fixed" 😌👍 Give my Rickey a hug!!
Rest In Peace Sweet Lady
