When I first heard about Fru Fru's passing my heart stopped.....she was a sweet, kind, and caring person. That smile that she had could brighten up a room...she got a long with everyone and she never met a stranger. Yani ((aka her diva)) and I really miss her. Mr & Mrs Stokes keep your head up and know that she's in a better place you will continue to be in my prayers
