    So sorry to hear about Fran-she was a good friend.
    I’m hoping she was at peace and wasn’t in a lot of pain. We will see her agin someday.

    Darrell and Rodney! Thinking about you and your family at this time. Fran was a very special person in my life. She did so much for me. I have been praying for Fran and know I will see her again. I was thinking about the day you and Fran got married we had such a good time and you both were so happy, I will always remember Fran and her laugh. Very good memories! Take care of yourselves! Love you!

Fran was the most amazing person I have ever known… Who else in there right mind would take the neighbor kid (me) for weeks to Colorado!! I will never forget the way she would look at you and smile….I can hear her now saying its…Fran!! She was kind and loving, and you knew when she was upset!! I want to thank her for having me over…all the time, I probably thought she wanted me around ..for company!! Ha ha!! She showed me If you had peanut butter and a piece of chocolate you could melt it down and there you have a Reese’s peanut butter cup!!! I was the happiest person ever when her and Darrell showed up at the Hutter Hall for my oldest daughter, Brooke’s graduation party!! I will never forget you Fran… please tell my dad we love him!!
