I meet Fran about 9 months ago when I started working at Gloria Dei Towers. Everytime I seen her in the hallways she would say "hello" to me. Every morning when I visited the Coffee Shop she had her "favorite" chair and would wave for me to come over. She would grab my hand and say " how are you today"?
She spoke every morning about her boys and how good they were to her while having her toast or english muffin and coffee. I surely will miss her when I go into the coffee shop ! To the family, may you find peace in all the memories that you have of her. Prayers to you all, Patti Chichilitti, Admin Asst at Gloria Dei Towers.
