Larry, Dawn and Dennise. I am so sorry that I was unable to come to
the visitation for Fran but I am not feeling very good. I got to know
Fran when she was an aide at Shipshe and enjoyed her very much. I
am truly sorry for your loss but she has fought a good fight and is
now at peace. Love to you all.
