Soon after I returned to California, my Darling, DEAR, INTELLIGENT, Honorable, Fran left our earth. I was BLESSED to be able to help her transition from living in her body to moving on to whatever it is that comes after. She chose Judy and I to assist her. I brought her a book, SHE. Fran took it out of my hands and read it to me. When she was done she said, "Where did you find this? Where did you find this." It was her life. As we laid in bed together, she said, "This is not as hard as I imagined." Fran was one of my MOST BELOVEDS. When I would e-mail her from NZ, when I was struggling in one way or another she would remind me, "Get Over It and Move On." she was never one to complain. Deal with what ever is happening, accept it and get on with life. After she died, I had a good long cry.... until I heard her in my head, "Thats enough Cheryle, get on with it." Fran was extremely practical.
