Aunt Frances used to always call me (more so after my own Momma passed away). I live in Missouri and my Momma (Dorthy), was her sister in law (Jim's sister). She could talk hours on the phone to me and kept up with me and my own boys even though we lived so far apart. I can still hear her voice and Uncle Jim's as well. She asked that I keep flowers on her son Tommy's grave, who is buried back here in Missouri and I always will, as long as I am able to. Rest in Peace Aunt Francis.
