    An angel has put on her wings and taken her seat in heaven. Miss Frances was one of the most loving, kind people I have ever known. She left this world a much better place by living on this earth so many years. May her soul rest in the peace of Christ.
  3. Donnie & Nancy Scarlett says:
    Dear Gary, Ricky & Rosemary, we are sorrowed in our hearts to learn of the passing of your mother. She was such a wonderful, godly woman that we feel so blessed to have known. Always an encouragement in our work of the ministry. She is at rest now and waiting for that great reunion day for us all. She surely was the Proverbs 31 virtuous woman. We are praying for you all during your time of mourning. Our love in Jesus. Donnie & Nancy Scarlett
