Memorial Fund for Kathy Fransen

My name is Paul Fransen. My mother, Kathy, passed away unexpectedly on December 19th, 2017 from a massive heart attack at the age of 58. 

My mother was an incredibly funny and wonderful person. Her laugh would fill a room and your face would hurt from smiling if you ever got a chance to meet her. This has been an incredibly difficult time for family and friends. I am reaching out with hopes to offset some of my mother’s funeral expenses as well as help out my father during this time.

My father is one of the most selfless humans I’ve had the pleasure of knowing and I would like to do something nice for him for a change.

My mother will be missed by many - my heart goes out to everyone who ever was able to spend time with and laugh with her.

Thank you for your support. 

I’ll miss you, mama ❤️
