I was so sorry to hear about Fran's passing. I was friend and a classmate of Colleen's at Visitation. I remember Fran fondly and am so sorry for your loss. I remember her as being a bright light, upbeat and positive. Fran was always great to us! I will remember all of you in my prayers. Please pass this along to Colleen. I do not know how to reach her. Fondly, Bobbie Shea O'Hare

To Fran's family,
I was friends with Colleen at Visitation - a freshman when Fran was a senior. She was always very sweet to me when the "way cooler" upperclassmen were definitely not!
I've lost touch with Colleen so I hope you'll extend my deepest sympathies to her on the loss of her sister. I know they were very close.
With my love,
Connie Deerin Dittrich
