I'm so sorry to hear of Frances' passing. Growing up on the Frederick Pike, we knew the Duttera family. Still remember when Mr. Duttera had my Joe stop by the house with his Santa suit on to visit the kids. He didn't tell Frances about this visit!! In this day and age, you couldn't do that without worrying about getting shot. She was a wonderful lady and will be missed.
