  5. I first met Frances when she was just a few days old and continued to see her periodically until the family moved to California. I recall, like her sisters, she was a beautiful woman. Her care of her aged father was loving and kind, even when she herself became ill. I share the sympathy of her family whom she loved, and share the regret that God called her home so young. Take solace in the fact she is in a greater life, pain free with our God. My love is with you. Anne Steinbeck
