Please accept my heartfelt sympathies for the loss of your loved one. I know in times like these is when we need the loving support of family, friends and neighbors. Please know that I will keep your family in my thoughts and prayers. I hope you can find comfort in the words of the apostle John in the book of Revelation chapter 21 verses 3 and 4. There the apostle John states that soon God will wipe away all tears of sadness from our eyes.

Rochelle

Family of Frances,
Sorry to hear of Frances passing. We have been friends, since childhood. In 1958 we moved to Wadesboro. We lived down the street and were best friends. My father was the manager of Roses 5&10. I did talk to Frances recently. Frances was a wonderful friend. She will always be in my heart. She loved her family, so much .

Ted, Janice and Katie, We are so sad to hear of Frances' sudden illness and passing. Our hearts are truly broken for you all and all the family and friends of Frances. We will miss our times together here at The Valley Inn where we enjoyed so many conversations and our continued friendship dating back to school days, and fun times at Carl's Food Center restaurant when Janice was just a baby. We watched the girls grow up, Janice helping us with our mama after her stroke and seeing Katie begin her college career at Western Carolina. We shared talks with Frances through the loss of one grandson and the birth of another. So much history and friendship through the years we have enjoyed with your family. And now we share your grief at the loss of such a good friend. Sending our love and condolences to each of you during this difficult time.

To the family and friends of Frances please accept my sincere condolences during these difficult days. Please remember though our Heavenly Father promise at Revelation 21:3, 4 and the promise at Isaiah 55:11. Though difficult let's hold onto these promises and Psalms 37:29 hope. Soon we all pray to have the blessing of seeing our loved ones again. My prayers and deepest condolences.

To the family of Frances Welch:Even though this is a sad time, try to fill your hearts full of hope and appreciation for the kind of life your love one lived.We are very thankful for the ransom , because as a result of the ransom it makes the resurrection a reality. We are thankful for the tears shed by Jesus when his close friend Lazarus died showing his deep concern for those who mourn. We are thankful for the Bible's reference to death as an enemy that will soon no longer threaten the human family (Revelation 21:3,4)
