My Sister, my closest friend and confidant. A caring, loving, giving, kind-hearted soul. One that would never, ever use someone. She fought hard. A battle no one with her loving ways should ever have had to endure. If she was your friend she would do anything she could to help you. She had a very hard time saying no to people, even when they used her. She was full of love. She was outgoing. She gave a lot of her time to volunteering at her local clubs and sometimes at the Church. Her neighbors helped her and she did things for them in return. Her family meant everything to her. She had touched so many lives with an abundance of love. One of the purest forms of love. She overlooked a lot of things that people had done. Never wanting to hurt others. Even when she felt hurt by them. However, if someone hurt anyone of her family, she had no problem telling them off in no uncertain terms. Her family was her life. You hurt them and the Mama Bear came out. She would not forget that ever. Forgive possibly but not forget. Fran was beautiful and her soul was beautiful She will be missed by all that love her. She will never be forgotten as long as one person that has known her is still breathing. We love you Frannie. Now and to eternity. Muahhh. See ya on the flip side. Hugs
