I am so sorry to hear about Fran's passing. She was always a bright light, so caring and giving. When we first met at a tractor pull, she offered her help with my legally blind mother-in-law to help get her around. I will never forget her and how much she cared about others. We would see her and Ken at many tractor events, and often came to Springport's events. May God rest her soul and give Fran and Ken their eternal reunion. 🙏
