  1. I am so so sorry….I thought the world of Fran. She was the most welcoming person. She always wanted to feed you. I knew she was not feeling well but had no idea she was failing. I feel awful about missing her calling hours and services. Please accept my most sincere sympathy. May she rest in peace in God’s loving arms.

  2. To the LaFrate family:
    I am very sorry for your loss. I was on vacation and just heard about Fran’s passing. I will miss her smile. her visits and her cook-offs at the Mayor’s Office with Joe Fiumara. She was a great cook, a kind woman and always so very proud of her family. My prayers and sympathy go out to all her family members and friends. She will be missed.
