My heart goes out to the entire family during this time, especially to my old friends Brenda, Mike, Rashida, & Tulani. Fran was a wonderful woman. I'm glad I knew her as a child and as an adult. May you find peace as you go through her memories and keepsakes. She loved you all so dearly.

Still cannot stop thinking of Fran. I wish i would of called her more often. She looked so good the last time we saw her in south bend last summer. Knew her over 40 years and she was so good to her family. Love, Bev Hoffman Erickson
