  2. My dearest John, Linda, Brenda and family, o how Dennis and I both wish we could be there. Please forgive us for not being able to. I take comfort in knowing I will see your precious mom again in Glory. There truly are no words to tell you of my sadness for you and how much of an impact your mom and your dad have had on my life as well as so many others. When I think of servants, John and Frankie are the first ones that come to mind outside my own parents. Your mom served so Sacrificially in the nursery so other moms could have a break, but more than that, be nourished spiritually. I so wish I could hug each of you, and tell you how thankful I am that we are in the same family. The family of God! That bond can never be broken. I love you all dearly, and thank you for after all these years being an example of a family who serves our loving gracious God!

  3. A beautiful picture of you mom posted here;That is how I will always remember her. She was such a kind , Christian lady. She will be missed so much by so many. May God bless you all.

  4. Dear John, Linda, and Brenda- so sorry to hear of your loss! I know that she is dancing right now with Jesus in Heaven. Your Saintly Wife and Mother prayed with me when I accepted Christ as my Savior when I was 12 and she will always hold the most special place in my heart. I wish for you comfort and peace at this sad time. Because of her influence I have raised my daughter, Annabelle, in a Christian home. She was dedicated at Arlington Community Church right after I adopted her and she was baptized at Fielder Church when she was 10. She has a servant’s heart and that was all possible because of Frankie. Praise God for her life and the biggest thanks I could give!
