Thinking of each of you as you go thru this loss in your own ways. Most Heavenly Father we ask that your Peace be placed upon the hurting hearts in this family as they say goodby to a very special lady in their lives. Each will hold special memories close to their heart as they remember her in their own way. We don't always understand why, but we know that you do & for that alone our hearts are softened by your continued love for each of us & the day we'll see you face to face again along with those who've left before us. We ask all this in your most wonderful and glorious name...amen

We read in total shock tonight of the passing of Frances. These are 2 of our favorite people that we have become friends with while spending time in Va. We have been stopping at their fruit stand for about 10 years and absolutely love this couple. We pray Gods comfort for Coy and the rest of the Wade family. We know how loved you all were by Frances With deepest sympathy, Harold and Margie Haynes
