There’ll never be anyone quite like Fran!
Our most sincere condolences to you and your family,
Fran was very happy and always fun to be around.
She stayed with my family some at night while her mother worked. I was a senior in high school. She was several years older and called me baby Sister and I called her big Sister.
She was so generous with me when she made very little back then herself.
She bought me an entire outfit and some Chanel # 5 for a date I was going on. I share that memory because that was the kind of person she was. Always giving to others.
She took me with her to visit Jack, her brother, when he was in service.
Fran invited me to come visit her when she moved to Atlanta.
My brother Doug Hagaman was extremely good friends with Jack.
I will never forget my big Sister, Fran!!
Do a happy dance for me in heaven big Sister!
I will see you before too long!

What a special lady Fran was to me. Much like a second mother she will always hold a special place in my heart. My prayers are with the family.
