What a most wonderful and kind-hearted neighbor. Fran always had a smile on her face, greeted me when I came home to visit, and shared lots of her wonderful cooking with us. I am very sorry to see you go, but at least there will be no more pain. Please tell Emory I said "Hi," and my Mother will be glad to see you as well. Rest in peace, Fran...I'll miss you always!
