    David and Family, we are very sorry to hear of Fran’s passing. She was a very strong and private person. Fran was my aunt but only 8 yr older. Pete and Dodie were my parents. Sending our prayers and best wishes to you. It is not easy losing a mother. We lost our mom in Dec. Take care. Susan and family
