Mark and family, I am so sorry to hear of Frances' passing. She was a precious lady. I always loved to hear her sing with her amazing alto voice. She is at home now with Jesus that she sang about, and Alvin, and all those gone before. We will see her again. Prayers for you all. Teresa Marsh Moody

Along life's way, we meet many people. Some of those we meet are a fleeting hello and some leave lasting impressions on you for the rest of your life. I met Mr. and Mrs Skelton so long ago I cannot remember when. They were and have always been a part of my life. They were my parents's (Ernest and Mary Kate Housewright Persinger) friends. Their Christian life had an impact on me. I am sorry you have to go through this. We lost our Mother last September. There are no words or actions that can dispel the pain. But, God's promises, his comfort and the knowledge they are in the precious arms of our Lord gives us hope. Our prayers are with you.

We send our sincerest condolences to the family of Mary Frances Skelton. My father's name was Maxwell Paul Dykes and my mother was Phyllis Dykes. The last time I saw Mary Frances was at Kayla Dykes' wedding. She was still full of life and loved to have fun. May God comfort you as only He can. Remember He is closest to the brokenhearted. Rejoice in knowing she is with Jesus now walking on those streets of gold and singing in pure joy. We are looking forward to that joyous reunion with her in heaven one day. Love and prayers to those she left behind. Remember she is waiting to see you all in heaven one day.

Frances was a dear, dear friend, the older sister I never had and a 2nd mother. We had some great times, lots of laughs. I love her so much and simply can't imagine life without her. I thank God she now has a brand new body, she is with Alvin, William and her mama and daddy and she is no longer suffering. Love and prayers for the family.
