Frances was such a good friend to my Mother (Ruth Parker)....I remember the two of them serving Coffee at the nursing home together....Mom always enjoyed their time together.....Their birthdays where a day apart (and a few years)....they would go out for lunch to celebrate (HyVee) ....I remember one time they where together and Mom got sick and I had to come get her at your Mom's house.....Your Mom ways taking good care of my Mom....She was such a sweet lady.....

We considered Frances and Dan good friends - went to a lot of square dance lessons and dances. She always had a smile on her face. Hope it helps to know that others are with you in thought and prayers.

Connie, Benny and Dennis,
So sorry for your loss, hope you find some comfort in knowing others care and share in your grief.

Some of my fondest childhood memories were made on the farm as a kid, sure my brothers could say the same. Your mother and Ruby were my favorite Aunts. I have been able to share memories with your mom over the years in Christmas cards.

Are any of you guys on Facebook? It would be nice to keep track of you.

Love and Hugs to you,
Denna & Gordon
