Mary Fran was a genuinely sweet and lovely Godly woman. She always had a smile on her face and a kind word for everyone she met. I enjoyed our short visits when she would come through my check out line or when I would meet her in the aisle at the store. She was always concerned for others well being. Heaven gained a wonderful angel and I will miss her smile. But this isn't a goodbye. This is a see you in heaven.
