  1. Fred and family:

    This is Toni Ludek Moore Wrightsman sending my sympathy in the loss of special friend “Frannie”. I remember you both with lots of smiles. Be well, Fred.


  2. Please accept my deepest sympathy for the loss of Francis. I have known her for a very long time; as my grandparents and her parents were long time friends in Auburn, Il. Her sister Mary and Helen are my aunts. My family left Auburn when I was 5 years old but I spent my summers in Auburn and Thayer. I live in Texas now and was born in Auburn in 1930. I am adding this information so you would kind of know who I am. Victor
