Celebrating the wonderful life of Frances Donna Andujar. The greatest show woman, she juggled careers, children, grandchildren, fur-babies and feathered friends while being the most loving and doting Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Honey, Maw-Maw, Sister, Aunt and Friend. She was first a lady, always, and devilishly simple.
To know her was to be loved by her. Even if you didn’t know her you were family and were treated as such. You met her in the grocery store, she was the nice lady who let you go in front because you had your hands full. Humble and kind. Pink Flamingos gave her hope because even the poorest of folks always find a way to have a couple in the yard. You witnessed her kindness when she helped you clean up a mess you got yourself into and left the room smelling better than when she arrived. She was there to calm your fears in the courthouse land records while helping you locate uncle so and so’s property lines. She was a most treasured friend to all who knew her. She thought so much of others she often forgot her glasses on the way out the door to care for them. No worries, she usually had hoarded a pair or two just in case. She listened to everyone, even when you thought she wasn’t. She heard our hearts and prayed for them often.
She learned how to pray from listening to her father. She loved her mother and Jesus and said her prayers loudly. She was a warrior and fought until her last breath was breathed. She prayed up to the second her spirit left her failing physical vessel on earth. Not once did she ever lose hope or faith. It was her final wish that everyone who valued her, know Jesus and love one another. She was a good and faithful servant. She held tightly when she hugged. She was held tighter when she decided it was time to cross the clear water and head over the river to Heaven and her Lord. She will be missed. To those who knew her, you were blessed to see how Jesus wanted you to love others freely and unconditionally. Until we gather at the river where bright Angel feet have trod. Rest in peace! See you on the banks of the river someday.
