    Fran and Fred lived around the corner from my family in Bellingham. It was a happy day when I’d bump into Fran walking down the street or when I got to chat with her during a visit or at the gym. She took wonderful care of herself, always active to the best of her abilities even after her cancer diagnosis. She had a welcoming smile, was always interested in how my family is doing, and especially loved to hear about our kids. I’ll miss finding her on a walk when I turn onto her street.
