Auntie, Thank you for all the wonderful memories. You are now with my dear uncle and my mother and father. We Will miss you greatly. You are in Jesus loving arms. "And the thought that makes me smile now, even as the tears fall down Is that the only scars in heaven are on the hands that hold you now". Love, Pam
Esther was always a best dressed godly woman. Always a joy to be with her. Grateful to know as the family of God that death only separates us for a season. See you soon Esther.
Such a kind generous soul full of love and fun. Ironically the last time I saw her was it my mother's funeral may they both rest in power
Although I have not seen Mrs. Franchitto in many years, her late husband and she were dear friends of my parents, Pat and Peter Johnson. My whole family sends our thoughts and prayers to all of you. Carol Johnson Mici
