  • Date of birth: Jan 10, 1952
  • Date of passing: Aug 14, 2007

In loving memory of Fran Nicol who passed away on 14th August 2007.

Fran was born on 10th January 1952 in Manchester and attended Moss House High School where she met Alex when she was 12 years old. They became childhood sweethearts and later married in 1970 and had their only child, Lisa, in 1972.

Fran qualified as a lawyer in 1978 and practiced in Manchester for the same law firm until she retired from the profession in 2000.

Fran spent the last 5 years of her life in Southern Spain where she moved in 2002 with Alex and Lisa. Prior to the move the family lived in Bury, Manchester, UK where Fran was a keen and regular tennis player at Bamford Tennis Club

All who knew her loved her so much and her passing has left a gaping hole in all the lives of her family and friends.

We love her, and miss her very much.

"God knows I miss you both so much, my heart breaks every day that you both are not here in my physical presence but you are both all around me in everything I do.

Two Angels met in heaven last night,
To talk and laugh about their past life,
One of them was my daughter, The other was my wife,

They were taken six years apart,
and together they live forever in my heart,

I wonder if they know just how I feel
or the void they left behind,
The depth of love I share for them
or that special place in my mind.

Two angels met in heaven last night,
I saw them on a star,
My Daughter and my Wife,
Whom I worship from afar.

They only wish me good in life,
Their happiness is mine,
My Baby and My Wife,
Two Angels and the're ours.""
