I am so sorry to see this. I have good memories of Frances from Hardy Band and Provine. Praying for her family.

Fran and I were very close, perhaps because I was born on December 11, 1952 also. We were roommates, shared a small rented bungalow in Northwest Jackson, when we were very young adults. She was a very thoughtful, great roommate, and a hard worker, too. When I moved to Dallas, she called me regularly, and was my link to sanity whether she knew it or not. I loved her very, very much. God bless her precious soul. Rest in splendor and peace, Fran.
