Michele, My condolences to you and your family. Fran was always kind to me when I visited my mom who lived next door at Cloverleaf. She was devoted to her sweet dog Olive and a wonderful friend to my mother. She will be missed. May she rest in peace. Michelle

Dear Aunt Fran, I truly wish I could have seen you one last time. You were a loving Aunt who always made me feel special. I can’t think of one thing I didn’t love about you. I hope Michele and Lois told you how I felt about you. I will always remember you with warmth in my heart and a smile on my face. My condolences to Michele, Lois, Donna, Jim and Cate.
