Fran Brogan was one of my best friends Mom. We met in Wisconsin around 1985 or 1986 when they lived in Pewaukee, WI. They had us over for dinner many times because our family was not available to be with us on holidays. She had the gift of hospitality. Her smile brightened a room. Her hugs were fabulous and freely given. I admired her love for her husband and always was a Titus 2 lady which I could learn from. When they, Fran and Clyde and Janice and Paul and kids moved to Ohio, I knew I would have a hole in my heart. But we all remained close, even with the distance. She was good at that...as her own kids were all spread out. She knew the importance of Bible Study and prayer and having lady friends. I loved that about her. She kept up with current events and had hobbies. Family and church were her bedrocks! She was a great role model. I will cherish my memories of her. Big shout out to Janice and Paul and family, who made sure she was well and safe all these years. Your example to the world is awesome as well. Love you all and will pray for the services, and for your life now as the grieving process occurs. Call me anytime to talk. Love and hugs...Michelle Engel, West Bend, Wisconsin
