Fran and I worked together at Sears in the Berkshire Mall back in the 70's She was a wonderful, caring, beautiful women. She was over 6 feet tall and I was just 5 feet tall!! We looked like mutt and jeff when we walked down the mall for lunch! We had so much fun and I still have a beautiful blanket she gave me for my first born son. I have thought of her many times over the past years and the memories always brought a smile to my face.
She was a special person and I know you will miss her so much

Fran and I first met at Sears many years ago. We became fast friends and had many great times together. Every time we would be together it was always hugs, kisses, and smiles. When ever Fran would enter a room she would light up the room with her smile. It has been years since I have seen Fran, but I have thought of her many many times and always with a smile on my face when I think of her. She has always made this world a better place and the people around her better for knowing her and being grateful for being her friend. Fran you missed terribly but still thought of often.
