Condolence: Terry, Myrna and Rick, I'm so sorry to hear of your mother's passing. I wish I could give you a big hug to express sympathy to you and help me cope with the great emotional waves I get when thinking of all Frances has done for me. Sailing with her and your dad on Butterfly changed my life and for that I will be forever grateful!
What joy! They taught me so much about life too. The importance of doing what you love, finding happiness in nature, the thrill and excitement of exploration and adventure on and in the water. Your mother and dad are the best examples of a couple devoted to each other I can think of. Because they enjoyed each other they spread joy to everyone around them and I feel so blessed to have been amongst that small group. Your mother and father are my inspiration for devoting my energy to sailing the world. I think of Frances and Bert constantly as I retrace our voyages in the Bahamas. I can't express my gratitude for the fantastic indelibly etched memories I will always have of sailing with Frances.
Condolence: So sorry to hear about the loss of Frances. She was a gentle lady I was glad to share visits & festive meals with at Joan Reay's home in Meneset. Her caring for people & cats & flowers & family & memories added to our treasuring of her friendship. I'm thinking about her & you at this sad time. She always made a cauliflower/broccoli casserole for our shared Thanksgiving dinner, so she'll be extra missed this year.
Condolence: Please accept my condolences for your loss. Grief is difficult, but your special memories can help you cope. May you find comfort in God's Word. It tells us at James 4:8 to "draw close to God and He will draw close to you." I hope this scriptural thought will strengthen you.
