"Fran" is my 2nd cousin (her father & my grandmother were brother & sister) Her family lived next door & were our only neighbors for as long as i lived there (21yrs.) Fran was a great & wonderful influence in my life, more like a "sister" relationship. Without her guidance throughout my childhood I doubt if i would have some of the values that i have now. I have so much to thank her for. God Bless you Fran & "Thank You
