    May happy memories carry you through this sorrowful time, you are in our thoughts, our hearts and our prayers. Bill and I only knew Fran for a few short years but loved the stories Kelly would tell about her and Shawna’s summer camping trips to BC. Whenever we made a trip to Calgary it was great to visit with Fran, she always had a smile and hug for us. Take comfort, as those who loved will be reunited in eternity.

    To Fran’s Family,

    My thoughts are with you. Your Mom was a very special friend to my Mom. They shared many cheese sandwiches in the lunch room at Sears. She was a lovely lady.

    The residents of Horizon Village Strathaven were saddened to learn of your Mother’s death. Fran was a good neighbour to us for many years. Not the least of the pleasant memories we have of her relate to her beautiful flower beds.
