Father of all, we pray to you for Frances, and for all those whom we love but see no longer. Grant to them eternal rest. Let light perpetual shine upon them. May her soul and the souls of all the departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

Frances was one of my Charity classmates and member of "our gang." We supported each other through thick or thin. I especially remember the time she returned to the dormitory from a weekend in Napoleonville with the best Italian meatballs and gravy I have ever tasted! You will miss her, Philip, but y'all will meet again in a much better place. My love and sympathy go out to you and the children.

Grief is difficult,but memories are wonderful. Frances Ann and I started first grade together and were friends through high school. She was my roommate at Charity and I sang for her wedding. I do know ,Philip., that one of her favorite songs was The Boy Next Door. I will remember you and your family in my prayers.
