Frances will always be rememberd. In our hearts, she remains special. We have a lot of memories shared. She became my family, especially when I had my little girl Tiffany. She's always present on Tiffany's birthdays... I can still recall sometime last week at work, she asked me to give her a recent photo of my daughter... Now that she's in heaven, may she guide me and pray for me to be always strong and healthy. We love you Frances. Love from the Wiseman Family : Ron, Noemi, Zac, Randy and Tiffany

At a very difficult time like this we hope it helps a little to know how much you are thought of and cared for by the people around you and most certainly us. It seems bittersweet because there will be smiles beneath the tears but someday the tears will win over, this I promise. Today we"ll say farewell but not good bye to your mom for we will meet again. Till then the memories and thought of her always cheerful smile will get us through. Please share some of the great memories with us all as we are eager to hear. Mel, of course it's been you that we are closest to and we are thankful to Frances for that. Her kindness, love of baking, and mostly strong love of family, has certainly been passed on to you, that we are so fortunate to be part of. My, your, family, will always be here for you to help you get through this and to find those smiles I promised will win out. You, Joe and JJ will be always in our hearts, and our hearts go out to Judy and your brothers. We love you, the Sweeks
