    Dear Peggy, Jan, and Danny; I am remembering your mother with great fondness, as well as your father. We were friends and did much business together over the years. You have much to be proud of concerning the lives they lived, their contributions to the community and the way they raised each of you to be staunch christians and good parents yourselves, by their examples. Their pleasant memories will be remember by many for years to come. Jim and Kaye Bonner

    Sorry to hear about your lost. It’s been a long while since I have heard news from Tennessee. It’s always hard to loose someone. I do have a lot of great memories of Frances when I was younger visiting.
