Fran and my mother (Lucille) lived close to each other and walked around the subdivision daily when there health was good. Mom missed Fran when Fran went into the care facility. Lucille passed away on May 14, 2020 but she talked about how much fun Fran and her use to have until ovarian cancer won the battle. I too remember Frans spiked haircut and seeing her out manicuring her yard daily. She had a smile and a gleam in her eyes always when we met. She will be missed by all.
