Stephanie (Stoner) Barr, Terry's daughter

Keeping all the family in our thoughts, especially our lovely, kind,& talented sister-in-law, Lisa (whom we sadly live far away from!) I never met your mother, but seeing how wonderful Lisa has been to our family all these years, I am sure Frances must have been a remarkable person.

Paul & Nancy Erhart
To you all, I am so sorry, I just found out this evening 4/12 of Frances' passing. I will certainly keep your family in my prayers for I know that you will really miss her. We have often spoken of her as some of us still gather for painting our ceramics. I just delivered a lily to her the Tuesday after Easter, I hope that she was able to enjoy it. We all have a lot of fond memories from the years past, and you do too. There will be a time that the grief will pass and you will again enjoy all of those memories. Take care,

Edna Brehm
