My name is Mary Ann Wyllie and I live in New Brunswick, Canada. I am a sister to Melvin Moore and his wife, Rosetta who have been friends with Fran and her late husband, Bernie for more than forty years.
My husband and I met Fran and Bernie many years ago and have kept in touch ever since.
Fran was such a lovely lady and we loved her so much and are going to miss her terribly.
I wish my husband and I could have been at Fran's funeral but its such a long way for travelling during the winter months.
Please accept our deepest heartfelt sympathy.
