I'm so sorry to hear of Fran's passing. Heaven has gained another angel.

I am completely devastated by Fran's passing. I can't even put into words how important a person, and friend, she was to me, in a very tumultuous time in my life. She once said to me when describing herself, 'still waters run deep' - that was Fran. I will miss you, and I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to have a last conversation. I am crying with your family. Dan Feldman (and family, Sally-Adam, Lindsay, Lauren)
