Condolence From: Rev. Charles and Ruth O'Brien
Condolence: Prayers and sympathy on the loss of your loved one. We pastor the Hopwood Free Methodist Church where we met Fran. Although we didn't know him well, we were impressed by his friendliness and smile. Our young granddaughter befriended him several years ago. She enjoyed talking with him and he always gave her a donut! She will be sad to hear and will miss him. May God bless you!
