    Auntie Fran was a great lady, always pleasant and helpful (when I was about 9 years old and she married my uncle Willard).
    I was glad we got to have lunch together summer before last and got to talk a little. She will be missed!
    Our sympathy goes out to cousins Judy, Will and Lana who, undoubtedly, will feel the loss the most.
