I first met Glynnie when we were 13. Since that time we have shared glad times, & sad times, but always knew we were sisters at heart. I can't tell you how much I am going to miss her. There is a bigger hole in my heart now.hukjz

I first met the sweet and delightful Frances Hatchell while we were at Washington Junior High. I was very pleased to find that she had not changed when we met again at subsequent high school reunions. I also had a chance to meet Gene. I know why they will both be missed.

Glynnie was truly one of the kindest most beautiful people I've ever had the pleasure to know. Just being in her presence always made me feel better and to be around she and Gene was to witness true love. I will miss her greatly.

I first met Gene and Glynn when i was about 10 years old. grew up as friends of Nancy, riding bikes or playing kickball down the block. later at 12 or 13 became the "paperboy" for our neighborhood. the Franchinis always welcomed me into their home and their lives, always shared a friendly wave in passing or hug whenever we saw eachother (most of the time dining at our favorite restaurant Mimmos) you will truly be missed, may God bless your family always... your friend and neighbor...
