Shively family, Having read of Fran's passing, I'd like to send my sympathy. I used to work with her many years ago at GTE. Most recently I'd see her at Bowman House. She had sat in a few times at the Bible study on Mondays, some time back. When our hearts are loaded and overwhelmed at this time, it's nice to know that Our Creator cares. We are urged at Philippians 4:6,7 to "not be anxious over anything, but in everything by prayer and thanksgiving to let our petitions be made known to God; and the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard our hearts and mental powers by means of Christ Jesus." So when there are times no human can help ease our grief, God can, even if it's only for a few minutes. Know that others have you in their thoughts. Sincerely, Cathy Taylor
