Because you lived a giving life of great love for others, your passing has created a special and very personal kind of sorrow in the lives of those who loved you back. Your love and Christian faith lives on through them. You were blessed to have lived a life that created such a wonderful lineage of loving people. In doing so, the Christian example you consistently displayed has touched and will continue to influence the lives of thousands. I am particularly thankful that you are the mom and grandmother of the family we share. You will be missed because you made a real difference in this world. Rest in peace Mrs. French. You and your family are in our prayers. Dan & Phyllis Payne
