Shout-Out to Miss Fran – you taught me a lot about life, joy, love, what’s really important, and what kind of old lady I want to be. Through our many hours of visits at your retirement home, later the nursing home, and finally on the hospital bed where you left this world to meet Jesus, I saw a lady who minimized her struggles and simply loved people and enjoyed life. Though your husband was gone, you had no children, and your eyesight had nearly left you, you always found something to be grateful for, and you loved to love on people. You’re an inspiration and an example.
