I have many fond memories of you and Mr Swift when I worked at the drugstore while in high school. You both taught me a lot that served me well over my life.

Frances was one of the sweetest and kindest ladies I have ever known. She and Bob taught me how to run a business, but more importantly to be caring and helpful to all. I am so grateful to have known them.
