I have to share with you that our friend and Core Member, Fran Casey died on Tuesday evening from a coronary occlusion, which I understand was quick and I am told that Fran did not suffer.
This news has stunned all of us and we are coming to terms with it. Our hearts and prayers go out to Barry who as Fran’s partner is totally devastated by the love of his life. Today is their wedding anniversary as well.
I have been advised just a short time ago that Fran will have a private funeral and that there will be a public memorial service on Thursday 4th February at 10.30am at her church, the Carindale Salvation Army which is located at 202 Gallipoli Road Carina Heights. At Fran’s request everyone is to wear some pink for this celebration of her life.
Fran as everyone knows was such a wise woman and loved her involvement with our Community. Fran loved being part of the National Listening and Speaking Group and she was a great assistance to me with the L’Arche Brisbane Listening and Speaking Group along with many other aspects of Community life. Fran will be sorely missed by all of us.
Peter’s concern was that Fran will not know what happened on her favourite soapie Home and Away but was happy with the thought that now that she is with Jesus she will know ahead of time and maybe even convince Jesus that Home and Away is a must watch show on TV.
May be you will be able to join the celebration of Fran’s life at the memorial service on Thursday.
