Fran Wallas Video and Obit Information

 Please read this information regarding the late Fran Wallas. There is a video link and an obituary link as well.
Thanks to Fount Bertram for providing me with this information!

I thought you might like seeing the video which will be played at Frans Memorial since you will be unable to attend. Devin Wells has done a outstanding job creating this amazing tribute. Frans family came by this morning, before the memorial, for some private time while watching it for the first time.
 
Please share with friends...
thanks and enjoy your weekend - I know thats what Fran would want.
