Many thoughts and prayers for Frazier's family at their time of loss and will one day find peace and comfort. I went to school with Frazier at Chilhowie and have wonderful memories of times we spent at school, in the band and many sleepovers at her house.

So sorry to hear of Frazier's passing. She was a joy to be around when my family knew her during her high school years - when we lived in Chilhowie. My thoughts and prayers for peace and comfort are with her family during these trying times.

Frazier was my sorority little sister in college. She was the most fun loving and giving friend. I last saw her about 10 years ago and we enjoyed several special visits. I hate we lost touch and that I didn't know she was ill. Danny, Jay and Dana, my heart felt condolences to you and the rest of your family. Rest well, Frazier Linda Ford Mann

I was sorry to hear of Frazier's passing. Even though she was having health problems, her sweet and engaging personality was on display whenever I had contact with her----which was usually in Food City. My heartfelt condolences to her family---
