Condolences to the family of Frances Childers McCracken

  • I am deeply saddened by the passing of your Mom. Frances was a dear friend with whom I had the privilege of working with for many years at State Farm. She loved her family so much and spoke of them in every conversation. I know she is going to be sorely missed.
