    I was so sorry to read of your loss. I knew Francine from PEGG Wives Club. We were in the same investment Club. I always enjoyed Francine and her irreverent sense of humour. I know you will miss her deeply. I have many fond memories of conversations over lunch together. Sincerely, Margaret Gibson
