Dorathy-May, Dwight and family, our deepest condolences in the loss of Frances. We met her 15 years ago when we became members of Rockyview Ramblers square dance club in Airdrie. She was always eager to help new dancers and was a friend to everyone she met. Her gift of the gab and constant presence at all events will be sorrily missed. Talking with her about dancing, family and our other shared love of curling always made for a pleasant Friday evening. Rest In Peace Frances, until we meet across the square again.
