Hey Franciniqua. It's very weird to be writing this. Ever since Bigfish, we would reconnect every few months or so just to keep in touch and I'm going to miss that. You and Ed and I were always down for anything, especially a crossword puzzle... but not too challenging because we needed to finish it on lunch break! You were generous and funny and always had vast knowledge to impart to me, hence your nickname, The Swami. I thoroughly appreciated your snarky side which always made me laugh. Thanks for coming to visit me before I moved away. I will never forget that. I will never forget you. Peace be with you, my friend. - Heidi

Thank you so much for your friendship, Franci. We had so many sweet memories, and I'll keep them in my heart forever. I'll miss your sense of humor and feistiness. Looking through your family photos brings a smile and a tear. It's clear that you were loved by so many.

Oh my dear Franci, you were truly an amazing person from the day we met. You always did focus on the positive, even if life was falling apart around you. Your laugh was contagious and your smile so beautiful. You were my rock when we were young living in Kansas. I wish we could go back to those nights of sitting in the lawn chairs, in the country, talking and laughing all night. I will never forget your love and friendship. One of my favorite memories was going to summer camp. We didn't make it to most of our classes but we had a great time. I pray you are at peace. I know you will always be watching over us all. I promise to do my best to continue to keep your memory alive. I promise to stay in touch with Kade for as long as he let's me. This wasn't the way we were supposed to have our reunion with Kim and Jenny. But we all made it. We will all be together one last time. I love you sister. You will forever be the wind beneath our wings.
Big hugs forever..

Why do only the good die young? It is just not fair.
Franci was the most motivated, hard working funny person! I admired her so much! She was amazing. This is an absolute tragedy. My favorite memory with Beautiful Franci.... was when we went to Little Bear for Carols surprise birthday party. Donna rented a bed and breakfast. Donna went to pick up Carol , while Franci finished decorating the room. I was busy setting up the camcorder to capture the event. Suddenly .... we saw car lights in the parking lot! We thought we had another 20 minutes. ( Pre cell phones)
Franci and I ran into the bedroom and hid behind the dresser.
But oops... We left a beer on the kitchen counter. As Carol and Donna were coming up the stairs... me and Franci realized ... A beer was on the counter... OH no! We were laughing so hard !!! We were debating if we should chance getting the beer. (I peed a little bit) from laughing. ... Which made us laugh harder. Carol walks in and says, " Donna,! I think someone has been here, there is a beer on the counter.!
( Carol worked for the police department at the time and was still in uniform. LOADED) Carol said, " Donna, I think we are in the wrong room! Donna covered by saying, " NO....I came up earlier to decorate and left the beer. Carol proceeded to go to the bedroom to put down her suit case. Me and Franci were crouched down by the dresser in the dark room, trying desperately to hold back our laughter.
Innocent Carol is looking for the light switch and she hears something... and went to pull her gun! (Who wouldn't ???)
Franci and I jumped out... cracking up!! Don't shoot! Happy Birthday! I was a great night!
I have the video. You will be missed forever, Franci!

I'm so sorry to learn about the passing of Franci. I met her several times in recent years at conferences in places like Edmonton and Las Vegas. She always seemed so jovial and up for a good time. My condolences to all her loved ones. She has left us far too soon.

Franci was a great leader of our Crane/Lift Group. She always solved problems with the same calm approach. She will be missed.
