My Dear Friend, Your family should know that over the last 30++ yrs of our special friendship I have kept every birthday and friendship card, note, or invitation you have ever sent to me, because they were all so very special and dear and appreciated. I will open and re-read the stack on special days when I need to be loved on, as u so freely gave me your love. And then, I will return the stack to my large pink and rose covered treasure box that is so befitting of you. My memories are wonderful but I will always miss you and love you and yours. I’m so sad now and will miss your presence but I’m confident we will laugh together again in each other’s presence. Hold a place for me at your long table. Xoxo Fran

Francie, I will miss you everyday. Your thoughtfulness through the past 18 years will never be forgotten. You never missed a birthday and I can’t count all the pots of your delicious chicken noodle soup you’ve brought us through Doug’s cancer treatment. You’ve been like a sister to me. I love you.
