(www.cmtausa.org/kensride) I knew Franny mostly as a little girl in this amazing family, The Gomez Family. Her Dad and I worked together at New York Bell Telephone Co. on Brown Street in Peeksill, but we knew each other from Highland Park where both of our families lived. Over the years, both my brother and sister would relay information about folks we all knew, and my brother, Bobby, told me when Franny made it as a police officer and about her promotion to Lieutenant. I also knew her sisters Patty, Nancy, Judy, and brothers Kenny and Larry. The others were still little when I moved out of New York State. They had the best MOM and DAD; and as I said they are an amazing family. I will keep them in my prayers and send all my love. Patricia (Reynolds) Lange
