Francis' (first) husband, Phillip, was one of my best friends in Little Rock High School, (now, Central), when she and Phil were dating. I attended their wedding. Phil and I both became Geologists ( and left the state). . I lost contact with Frances, but i have fond feelings and memories of her from those days back in the 1950s. Iwas so sorry to hear of her loss, wish I had known she was here, in Arkansas. Deepest sympathy for her family . May she Rest In Peace. Don Castleberry, Maumelle (501) 960-1960
