Fran and John made us feel so welcome once we moved into our home 3 years ago and ever since had become close. She always knew just the right thing to say. I admired her wisdom, fun loving spirit and great sense of humor. She was a friend and someone I grew to admire. I’m sorry we didn’t get more time together but I know you’re dancing with the Angels and at rest and eternal peace with our Lord Jesus. Until we meet again my friend....Virginia 💕🙏

You were such a wonderful person and had such a big heart. You were such a wonderful friend to my mom and always a pleasure to be around. You and John always made us feel like family. May you RIP and find peace in the arms of Jesus. We will all miss you.
