Dear Selina and Richard,
I admired your mother before I ever met her in person. Her letters to the editor were so carefully thought out, so well reasoned and convincingly stated that one could not help but wonder who this woman was. When I finally did meet her, it was easy to see that she was as strong and funny and wise as her letters had shown her to be. The world was better for her presence and she will be missed by many, though, of course, most of all by you and I send you my deepest sympathy for your loss.
All good wishes,
Betsy Wing

Dear Selina and Richard,
I was sorry to learn that your mother has died. As a food pantry board member, I have known Frances for about 18 years. I always enjoyed talking with her, both at the pantry and elsewhere. She would have a wry and funny comment about our national political situation and would have interesting comments on a wide variety of other topics. Her letters to the editor of the Register were terrific! She will be missed by many, me included. Please accept my heartfelt condolences.
