Franny was a favorite cousin, spent many cold days ice skating in the little pond down the hill from her house. She will be missed, all my love to the family. Rest in peace cuz.

We will not be sad when we think of Fran because we shared some great memories with her, walking on the beach in Puerto Rico and finding a great big shell, riding to the top of the Eiffel tower at sunset, having coffee viewing the Matterhorn in Zermatt, seeing her and Bill change clothes at Crater Lake because it was freezing, climbing the mountain trail in Glacier National to Hidden Lake, braving the wind in Yellowstone, rafting on the Rogue River after a harrowing over mountain ride, just to name a few. No we will not be sad but glad we had her for awhile and will remember.
