I first met Fran in 1962 when her father became Pastor of Park Place Methodist Church in Houston. We had Great Times at Youth Church Activities, Dancing at Teen Parties, and Going to the Movies with Friends. We even went to Deady Junior High together in the Spring of 1965. I Missed Her when Her Family moved up to another church in Nacogdoches in 1966. Imagine My Shock after looking at her Tribute Pictures and seeing her Beautiful, Amazing Transformation into a {In All Due Respect} Lovely Woman. As she was Blazing a Trail becoming a Master Educator, I was sailing as a Maritime Engineer on various Cargo Ships and Oil Tankers for 20 years. Then, I became a High School Math Teacher for a few years myself. Now, I'm a Senior Math Tutor. I Know that Fran's Spirit will be With Me, as I continue to Educate Our Students. I just found out about Her Untimely Death. Please Receive My Belated Condolences. God Bless All of Her Friends and Family.

Fran was the Pep Squad sponsor and I was the Band Director at Galena Park JUNIOOR School when I began teaching in 1977. We coordinated songs for pep rallies and football games. Those were the days. We had so much fun and we were so young. Actually, we were the same age. I missed Fran when she became an administrator, but I was happy for her and we did see each other at events. I'll always remember Fran's smile and her laugh and her love of children. Fran you'll always have pom poms in your hands when I think of you. God Bless your family.

Fran was one of the loveliest women I knew professionally and personally. She always saw the glass as half full, and her thoughtful, deliberate advice was always so valued. She stopped by many mornings in my library to chat, and it was always a treat to receive her. She had a way of settling down my most hectic mornings! She had a very calming presence, and her kind voice and gentle smile were a comfort. Her blue eyes sparkled; a co-worker and I referred to Fran as having the eyes of Christ! She was always lifting someone up. The world is a better place because of Mrs. Keal, as well as MANY students and teachers whose lives she touched. This classy, spunky lady will be missed! Prayers for peace and comfort to Jim, Tracy, Kristen and families, as well as her precious mom and brothers. Thank you for sharing Fran with us!

I've worked for many principals but Fran Keal was the absolute best of the best! She believed in you as a teacher and encouraged you to stretch the boundaries in the classroom. What a joy she was to work for. If you ever got to attend the Cinco de Mayo celebrations at MacArthur Elementary in the late eighties or early nineties, you saw a school that was working at 150 percent to build strong students. Thank you, Fran, for your inspiration. You made me a much stronger and more dedicated teacher. Prayers for Jim and the girls.
