This blog is about the life and evolution of Cambridge, Massachusetts 02138 and the world beyond, but especially Neighborhood Nine. Part of my blog will be reviews on neighborhood merchants, product/restaurant reviews, events, fashion and what's new in the city.
Sit back, relax and enjoy the journey.
Queen Mother Frances Jo Smith Pierce at 82 years of age, quietly passed away this morning at 5:30AM in her home 106 West Woodridge Drive, Durham, North Carolina 27707. She was surrounded by her 3 children Melvin, NneNna and Debbie. Her heavenly journey has now begun and the transition was peaceful and loving.
Mom’s spirit has ascended to the heavens and she resides with the angels. In lieu of a funeral, the Queen requests a memorial tribute and celebration of her life that will be held in Durham, N. C. More specific information about this tribute will be forthcoming.
At Mom's request, please no flowers. If you would like to make a donation in the name of Queen Mother Frances Pierce, please send to Monument of Faith Church P.O. Box 827, 900 Simmons Street, Durham N.C. 27702. Cards and expressions can be sent to the Frances Pierce Family 106 W. Woodridge Dr. Durham NC 27707
During this time of grief, there is also great joy. Let us remember the Queen Mother’s favorite quote: We love you to life!
The Pierce Family, Melvin, NneNna (Freelon) and Debbie
