    Dear Wally and Family, it was with much sadness to have learned of the passing of Frances. Throughout the lifetime of my late husband, Peter Wesley, he held Frances and you in high esteem, and greatly respected you both. Since I came to know Frances and you over the past quarter century, I shared the same respect. Frances was a kind and gentle woman, and will be missed. May your many memories bring you comfort during this time of sadness. I hope it helps to know that others are keeping you all close in thought. ~ Kindest personal regards, Donna
