    Although she was my cousin, Aunt Fran referred to herself as my Aunt. She has been in my life ever since I was born, nearly 76 years ago. I grew up in Vandergrift, PA with Aunt Fran and her husband, Joe always a few houses away from me. She was one of my most beloved “Aunts” and i will always love and miss her greatly. Rest in Peace, Aunt Fran. To Cookie and all her family I want to offer my sincere sympathy and prayers.
