  1. Both Roxanna and I wish to send our heartfelt condolence to Keith and family over the loss of Mrs Franze. May God give you peace in the days ahead as you continue life without your loved one.

  2. I was so sorry to hear of Mary Anna’s passing…..I remember her when she used to attend Christian Women’s Club and bring her granddaughters. How special that was…. I pray God will be with all the family as they face the days ahead…. Jean Reavis

  3. Keith

    I’m sorry to hear about your mom passing. After our visit this summer, I’m sure she’s at peace, and I hope you and family are as well. She was the last of that generation, and she will be missed. Katie called with the news, after Michael read it in the paper; I would have made plans to be there, but time did not permit. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

    George and MaryAnn.
