March Challenge - Jan's Digi Stamps and Small tribute to Frances

 Small tribute to Frances 

I can remember all the delicacy, all the sympathy that came from you. My dear friend, you shouldn't have left this world so soon. You still had so much to give to everyone and everything.

You were a great friend and will never be forgotten. For all the good you did to those around you, you will be remembered. The homesickness is great and the tendency is to increase, but the memories are also many and serenity will help.

Until one day, friend.

Rest in peace.

As you all know, Frances left us last month, and she was our DT for a long time ... 
and here is a small sample of what she always did for the group and that enchanted everyone !!!



Until one day Frances !!! 💓
