Celebrating the life of Frances W. Piccone
Thank you for signing Frances W. Piccone's Guestbook
My deepest sympathy to your family Sandi. I have thought of you since your call and I am sorry we were out of state during the services. Your Mom was very lucky to have a daughter who loved her unconditionally even when those conditions were difficult to handle. She knew in her own way how fortunate she was and I am certain she is smiling down at you now knowing you will take care of your Dad as you have for her I hope your sorrows will ease in the coming days and you will then remember only the good times.

Without Frances' "motherly" support (and many dinners), my time with Crooksville schools would have been much more difficult. She and Fred made my time there such an enjoyable experience.

Sandi, Donnie, Fred and family, Roger and I send our sympathy and love to you all. I have so many memories of your mom when we were kids. Being our Brownie leader at North School is one of my first memories of her. And, we were in an out of your back door hundreds of times throughout the years. The last time I saw her was at my mom's visitation. She was a lovely lady. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. Love, Elaine and Roger Tewksbury.
