Benefit for Fran Opre 

A benefit concert is being held at the Double Door in Chicago on Wednesday July 21st (Doors at 8, show at 9. $10) in memory of Fran. Check it out.
As a sidenote, let me tell you how completely floored I am at the number of people that appear to be searching the internet for info on Fran. The hits on my site that come as a result of people searching Google for Fran are unreal. We're talking double digits most days (which is a lot for me). Since so many people are looking for info, give me what you've got. I will be more than happy to post links, emails, comments, whatever. You can email me or just leave a comment on this post.
My heart goes out to all of you.

UPDATE (7/29): Go check out the 'Guestbook' for Fran at the Chicago Trib online. It won't be around much longer, so get over there. Click on "View the photo gallery" to see a picture of Fran tending bar at Delilah's.

Thanks for your offer to post info on Franny. Her "Guestbook" at the Chicago Tribune will be available until July 2005, but it's hard top find unless you know where to look. I'd appreciate your posting a link to: http://www.legacy.com/chicagotribune/Guestbook.asp?Page=Guestbook&PersonID=2351886
