    I worked with Fran at New Hanover Home Health and she was the nicest person you could ever meet. She was truly a friend with her love for people and the best nurse a patient could ask for. A great Nursing Supervisor and treated office staff as well as nursing staff with great respect. Prayers for her family. RIP Fran.
