From the very first time I met Aunt Fran I felt at ease. She was so very kind to me! She and Uncle Ralph were always so inquisitive and encouraging each time we came together at family reunions. I have always felt very blessed to have married into a family that was so gentle and thoughtful. I will miss her.

I remember Aunt Fran as very family oriented... her own but the extended family too. When we would see her she always wanted to know how we and and our kids were doing. Always inviting us to visit them and the shore ... and she would be happy to watch our children :) We never managed to take her up on those offers but I had no doubt that she would have been happy to do it and would have loved to have the time together. Seemed to be happy with the more the merrier...

To the family of Frances, I am truly sorry to hear about your loss. Frances was loved by all and I can only imagine the pain you are feeling. May you find comfort and peace in the promise that our Heavenly Father Jehovah has for those who have died as well as their loved one. This is found at Acts 24:15 and Psalms 46:1. My deepest condolences.

I'm so glad I got to see Aunt Fran one last time recently- even if under such sad circumstances. She was always so very sweet to me...even when I first started dating Rich and trying to navigate my way around the immense family, she was always so sweet and welcoming to me....I always had someone to sit by and chat with when I didn't quite know too many people yet....she always made me feel so welcome. I'm saying a special prayer for her tonight and sending warm hugs and hopes for comfort to all of the family!
