    Pam, Deborah, George and Greg, i was very sorry to hear of Frances' passing. She was a very sweet lady and was well respected by all. I can remember years ago when she wrote the London News for the Danbury Reporter. She is with George and Rhonda now and I know she's happy. If I can be of assistance in any way, please don't hesitate to let me know. Mark W. Young Walnut Cove, N.C.

    Losing a loved one is painful. Here's something that's Real comforting. The dead will be back to life here on earth to enjoy life forever without pain, tears and death again. Acts 24:15; Ps 37:11,29; Rev 21:3-5. I love to give comfort I have lost family members in death too. So I can give you and the family comfort here's my email helpandcomfort@gmail.com
