  1. Aunt Fran and my mother Sissy Eaves Williamson spoke often on the phone and would write each other letters. When my mother passed away in Dec 2014, Aunt Fran sent a beautiful arrangement of yellow roses to the funeral. She had also bought mom a St. Francis garden statue to which I have now. My sincere condolences.
