Message: Thank you everyone for your kind and wonderful comments. She would be so pleased to know all of you have written here and that she was so loved!
Her passing has been very difficult for us, as she was our foundation and our guardian in so many ways. It is like starting a new life, one without her physical presence yet with us just the same. Thank you!

Message: To Fran's family.....I only just heard about Fran's death and was very sad to hear the news. I got to know Fran back in the 80's when she and I were both very active in pro-choice activities. Over the years since then we would run into each other every once in awhile and I was always amazed at how great she looked and how active she was, even as she got older. I enjoyed her stories about her life and her kids and grandkids, and I grieved with her when she lost her son. She was a great role model for me, and I want to extend my sincere sympathies to her family. Unfortunately, due to a family situation I am unable to attend her memorial service today.

Message: Mamma, it will be 1 month tomorrow and I still can't believe that you are gone. I keep thinking I have to go in and check on you or bring you your meds or get your breakfast or dinner. It is hard to make changes like this that really affect life's bends in the road. I miss you more and more everyday. But, I know you are out of pain and misery and that you are where you need to be, with our Lord.
I love you mamma.

Message: How do I love thee? Let me count the ways...
My heart burns and I feel hatred at life's process. Death is so final to me.I talk to you all the time and know that you are not dead but always alive! You were before, and now you are again. I remember.
But in these final moments of life, I see the hypocrosy of life. Shell the soul within flesh, so that we may work all our lives to reveal to all the spirit within us. And then in the end, here we sit and mourn our loved ones. We mourn their bodies before we mourn their spirit. Their beautiful faces, warm hugs and loving smiles. We miss those eyes, those expressions, those sayings. We miss the way hair is combed, coffee is stirred and stories are told. We miss a cookie for I love you, a tuck-in because I worry about you and hug because I am a part of you. I miss your laugh, your smile and your hugs. I miss your beauty, your mystery, and cookies and punch. Ice cream will never taste as sweet and I will never be the same.
You mold me, you move me and you humble me.

You will be missed but I know that you were looking forward to seeing our Lord Jesus. You have always been a good friend. One who would listen to whatever we decided to talk about. I am so sorry that I could not have talked to you more. I wish that I could have said good bye to you. You are an Angle.

Message: Fran was such an important part of St. Stephen's in Billings and has been missed ever since her move to Washington. She personally influenced my life and decisions I made. Selfishly, I mourn her death, but knowing she is being lovingly held in our Father's arms brings great joy. Fran will always be missed.

Message: Beth and Kevin and families - I am so sorry to see that you have lost your mother. I always thought she was so beautiful and perfectly polished. I'm sure she was appalled at me, the little tom-boy, but she was very polite and kind to me. Take care. Cindi

Message: To the Family of Fran Miner:
I worked with Fran in Billings, Montana and she was my idol. She was the "perfect lady." I can still see her on a beautiful spring morning with her white gloves and with everything "in place." She was beautiful. I hope that Beth will contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org as I've been looking for you for several years.
Thank you and all my love and prayers,

Your family is in our prayers.
