I am so sorry . I just saw where your sweet Mother has gone for her rewards . I was checking on arrangements for Charles Houk n saw her sweet picture . Rejoice when a Christian dies n weep when a baby is born into this world. I would have came by funeral home if I had known! Mila Rutledge

So sorry for your loss, David and Wanda. She was a wonderful lady to sit with. I enjoyed the times we had at Highland Ridge. She will be missed.

Psalm 116:15 reads..."Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints." Truly Frances IS one of those. In Acts two ladies were described as servants. The Greek word used is diakonos, the word from which we get the word deacon. She was that kind of servant. As we age there are some of God's people we remember always with joy. Frances and Shorty were those type of saints. We regret we aren't able to be there with you, but I have another funeral here Saturday afternoon. Love, Tommy and Glenda
