    To the family of Melissa Clarke. We are very sorry for the loss of your loved one, Fran, as we called her. We were very fond of her and will always remember her as a loving, devoted mother and grandmother. R.I.P. Fran

  2. I am sorry for the loss of your mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt, cousin and friend. You have my deepest sympathy. I will continue to keep the family lifted in prayer. It really saddens me that I didn’t get a chance to meet Mrs. Brewer in person, but I talked to her several times on the phone and she has such a sweet spirit that it just seemed to flow through. I know you all will miss her dearly.

  3. I would like to take this moment to say that I will never know how you are feeling at this time in your lives but know that a mother’s love is very special. A loss of a parent/parent’s is something that we do not prepare ourselves for but that we need to understand that GOD has made a place for them all. As my mother always say; which drives me crazy, is that she can not leave until she knows that her children are safe, taking care of, and happy. Your Mother now knows this and she has blessed you all. Love Always

  4. Melissa sorry for your loss praying for you and family

    We are sorry to hear about the passing of your beloved mother and our “SISTER”, one of our oldest and dearest friends. From our early childhood days and throughout adulthood, Frances gave us a lifetime of fun-filled memories. We recall her sense of humor, contagious smile and laughter, our “Birthday Club”, and especially her love of cats.

    As Frances has left this earthly home and we say farewell, we know that her spirit will live on in each of us. We are not here to tell you not to grieve,
    • For the Bible tells us that Jesus Himself said, “Blessed are they that mourn; for they shall be comforted. (Matthew 5:4)
    • The Bible also says that, “the Lord is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; and He knoweth them that trust in Him. (Nahum 1:7)

    In your hour of despair, trust and believe, for God’s words and promises are true. Feed upon His Word, His promise, and praise Him for His endless love and power.

    Frances certainly will be missed, and we pray that her soul rests in perfect peace.
