Dear Pete, Pat, Maddy, Claire and Teresa,
We want to express our deepest sympathy and condolences on Fran's passing.
Many people know Fran because of his athletic accomplishments; we know Fran as a fine person. He always had a quick smile and time to stop and talk whenever we encountered him. It was truly a pleasure to know him and your family for our years together at GAAC and Germantown Academy.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you,
Mike and Lauren Emmett

I am so truly saddened by the tragic and early loss of such an example of the human spirit. I never met him, but as a former U.VA. swimmer, feel as though I somehow knew him and can see the impact he had on others. We can only hope that in our daily lives we impact others half as much as he did in his short life. My thoughts are with you all.

Our prayers are for Fran and for all his family. Tom, Cathy, and Brian Burke

I didn't know Fran that well, but what I knew of him was all special. He seemed like the kind of guy who always thought of others first. My prayers are for his family, I know how much he loved them. And can just imagine, how much they will miss him.

To Pete and the Crippen Family; take peace in knowing that Fran is with our Lord and that God had a different plan for him. I wish you all strength during this tragic time as Fran was beloved and respected by all in the Swimming Community of other swimmers, officials, and coaches. Fran was a star that will continue to burn bright in heaven as he did here on Earth. My deepest sympathies and prayers go out to you for guidance and strength as he will never be forgotten.
