So sorry for your loss. Frances was always very kind. My Father worked with Van for a number of years, we were actually neighbors for a few years. My heart goes out to all the family.

Dear Becky, Keeping you and your entire family in our prayers! May the Lord cover you, comfort you, and help you through this difficult time. Wayne and I only met your mom once at your birthday party the year before last when she took the mic and broke out in an old song she had written! : ) We are here for you if you need us. Love you Becky.
