It is with Love and prayers that I offer my deepest sympathy to Mary Lynne, Mark, and all family and friends. I missed Fran when she moved away as we met periodically at the grocery store or on an occasional visit to her home. Yes, she was a Loving, caring and gentle soul, just to mention a few of her gifts. I will miss her. Please remember her for all she was and let God ease your sorrow. For Fran: Eternal Rest grant unto her, Oh Lord, and may Your Perpetual Light shine upon her. God bless.
