Alwaysenjoyed the stories Frances would tell when we were back in school and I came over to the house to hang out with Bryan and Brad. Talkedabout her youth and her days in the Valley. Shealways had something to say aboutthe fish net & cans hanging from the bedroom celling and when we stayed out too late on a weekend night or how we competed in a school sporting event. Always a straight talker.
Our hearts and thoughts go out to Bryan, Brad, Barry and their wives, children and grandchildren at this time of loss.
