We are extremely sorry to hear of Fran’s passing. Although neither of us had seen Fran in a while, it was ALWAYS a pleasure when we did have that good fortune. She was so very caring and enthusiastic. We hope that the best memories– times of fun, laughter, accomplishment, contentment, love– shine through to sustain you through the most difficult days.
