Kathleen and family, We were truly sorry to hear of Aunt Fran's passing. We understand how difficult your loss is since our mom passed away last August. The three Frans certainly tried to keep in touch in spite of the distance between them. Unfortunately, dementia made that harder in recent years. Our condolences to you and your family from all of us in Nova Scotia. Peggy, Farrell, Debbie, Kim and Jill

I would like to express sincere condolences to Fran's family. Fran will always have a special place in our hearts, as she was a dear friend and neighbour to our Mother, Verna Daub. Her kindness and caring was so special and she was a gentle spirit. The world was blessed to have had her as a part of it. She will be missed. Holding all of you in our thoughts and prayers, Verna Daub, Pat and Donna Daub, Linda Allen and Corrine Quinlan
