Dear Stephen and family,
We are saddened to hear of Fran's passing. There was no one like her in the field. We were happy to refer others to her and to benefit from her tremendous reservoir of skill and humanity.
May the many visits and calls and emails and other forms of outreach lift and console all of you at this emotional and difficult time.
