Bob and family, I always enjoyed your mom at BSP. She was never without a smile on her face and a friendly hello. I'm glad I had the opportunity to know her and your family. Thinking of you all during this time. Kim Armstrong

Fran was my across the street neighbor and second Mom for 37 years on Manor Rd. We shared a love for all things garden related. She always had time for me and showed interest and concern for me in my busy working girl life. Other than my own mother, I have never known anyone else as kind and loving and special and sweet as Fran. Bob . . . I made a short video of her before I moved to Rhode Island. I would love to send it to you but I don’t have your current email address. JANE
