Fran came to my church during the summer and sang a wonderful song based on Romans 8:38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor principalities shall separate us from the love of Christ. Fran sang this song with such conviction. I believe she is now in the loving hands of her Heavenly Father. Peace Ed Terry
