Fran lived a simple life, fancy things did not interest her, Fran’s philosophy was “if it works that is all the matters to me” she drove a 2003 Highlander and had very modest furnishings. Glamor and glitz were not part of her life. Fran loved Neil Diamond and had memorabilia from concerts she went to and knew every song. Fran was a detail in everything she did. She kept the post it note company in business with all her sticky notes everywhere. Everything had a place and needed to be placed back in its place.
