Condolences left for Frances Movesian:

    Steve, Mike, Brian, and families,
    I am so very sorry for your loss. However, I know that Aunt Frances is in a much better place! I want you to know that I loved your Mom. Anytime we were fortunate enough to travel to Belleville, your Mom welcomed us with open arms and lots of good food! Often one of you boys would be teasing her, but she always took that in stride and kept on with the task at hand. I'll continue to keep each of you in my prayers. May God grant you strength and comfort in yur time of need.
