Dear Bob Dennehy and Family,
We have been feeling your loss since we heard and we send our heartfelt condolences.
We pray that Fran's transition is peaceful and when she is on the other side she is received and greeted with so much LOVE and DIVINE LIGHT.
We are so happy that we did finally meet-up for an early Lunch/Dinner on Long Island over the summer of 2018.
We will miss Fran very much. May her memory always be close to your hearts.
We send our love and healing prayers, and Bob, we are here for you always.
May each of you Be Well Always in All Ways.
