Deepest sympathies during the loss of our precious Fran. I was humbled and honored to know her and be loved by her. I cherish many fond memories of Fran and Tom working and laughing together side-by-side at the Zoo and take comfort in knowing they are finally reunited. Love and Prayers to Jayne, Malia and Rick during this difficult time.
We can look forward to the day when there will be no more sickness and death. Revelation 21:4 says: "And he (God) will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away". Please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember God loves you and he cares for you! (Psalm 36:7; 1 Peter 5:7)
