Jim, John and Lynn,
My Deepest Sympathies.
I'm so sorry for your loss.
Fran and John shared their Bowie home with me back in the 70's.
Gave me food and shelter in my troubled youth.
Later, Fran would organize many of my vacations.
I will always be grateful for allowing me into their home.
May the Grace of God comfort you now and always.

Dear Lynn, Bob and Jim, I am so sorry for the loss of your Mom. All the Golato's send their condolences. Fran was a wonderful friend and neighbor and we have missed having her here in Bowie all these years. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.

I happened to see your Mother's obituary online while visiting our daughter in Greensboro, N. C. I had no idea that was where she grew up and will be buried. It's a wonderful City.

Sorry to hear of Fran's passing. I played bridge with her for years. I always enjoyed our conversations. She was a wealth of information. And, she had so many interesting & funny stories to tell. She lived a long & full life.

Frannie was a wonderful lady who will be missed by all who knew her. She was my Mom's best friend and like a second mother to me. My sincere sympathy goes out to the entire family.

"Doodle" was a fun lady with a great sense of humor, and quite a beauty! She loved her family and her God, and we will all miss her. Heaven has another angel, and the Noah clan is rejoicing together! Love and prayers for all of you.
