I shall fondly remember all the times I sang and Fran played the organ at OLSH. He was always open to trying new songs and everyone seemed to look forward to what we might do next. No one has even come close to his expertise in playing the organ (and piano). He always put so much feeling into his music. The Pastors may have changed over the years, but Fran and his beautiful music were that constant that kept people coming to Mass. His nimble fingers on the organ, sense of humor, and cooperative nature are sorely missed at OLSH . With love and prayers to Maureen and Steven
