To the Family of Frances Tarleton,

I was blessed to have met Frances during our Bible Study Group that was held at Meadows bimonthly. Frances always added words to enlighten us on the scriptures and she encouraged each of us.

Some of us visited her while she was at the rest home and she had such a positive attitude. Our plans were to visit her and lift her spirit. We left with our spirits lifted and encouraged in the Word. Her life reflected her love for the Lord and now she will be able to enjoy His presence.

It was a blessing to know her.

Dear Family of Francis Tarleton,
I just heard of the passing of our dear Frances today. Please accept my sincere sympathy. Frances was a delightful member of our Bible Study and prayer group at the residence where she lived. She shared her knowledge of the bible and her christian experiences with much joy. She was proud of her family and was especially proud of her grand children who participated in their church.
We are saddened that she will not return to our group but we believe she is most happy being with the one she loved so much ,Jesus Christ.
We will keep you in our prayers.

Francis was an active and vocal member of our Upper Room - Bible Study Group. We met every two weeks at the Meadows Apt complex. She was a faithful participant who helped with organizing and communicating with the group. Her love for the Lord was very evident and she had such a sweet spirit about her.

I was out of town when she passed and am just hearing about it. I am so sorry that I wasn’t here to attend her services or connect with her family. I want to send my condolences and love to her family. It was a blessing to get to know her, to fellowship with her and to study God’s Word with her.
