    We sure loved our Aunt Frances! She became my second mom when my mom went to heaven. Her phone number is listed in my phone as Frances Brent (Mom). I know they are enjoying each other now and I will see them again soon!

    Cannot express what a joy it was to work with Frances for many years. She was a joy and sure knew how to have a good time with, and take care of, her co-workers. How many fond memories we all have. She knew she was loved!

    Gonna miss my sweet Aunt Frances, her sweet smile and endearing sense of humor. But I know she is enjoying a tremendous reunion with family, friends and Jesus.

    Never saw her without a smile on her face. Always loved visiting with her. She had that inner happiness that only comes from being a christian. She will be greatly missed in this community.

    Dear Becky and Gary, Mark and Brenda, and all your family,
    I am so very sorry for your loss, the stunning immediacy of Mrs. Brent’s passing, and the grief it brings to your hearts. The deep devotion you all shared with her has always been evident, and a beautiful relationship to see.
    Thank you for allowing the celebration of Mrs. Brent’s passing to be made available on the GoodNaz website. I’m sorry I couldn’t attend due to the present “sickness”, as our little Meghan calls it, but I am grateful to have been able to “attend” online.
    God bless and be with all of you as you work your way through these next difficult months that are coming.
    Love and prayers. . .

    By far, the nicest lady I have ever known. It was an honor to say I knew her.
