Thank you so much to everyone for your support during this time.
My Mom, Frances, was a special, bright, woman who exuded joy and blessed so many people in her life. Her death came suddenly and unexpectedly and I know none of us were ready. It is so amazing to see how many people love her and how many lives she has touched. This GoFundMe is linked to an account that was set up specifically for helping her family with all the costs incurred that we were not prepared for. Thank you in advance for all your support and prayers. We are so grateful.

Sincerly,
Arminda White
