RIP Frances Harding | (9/12/1981 - 8/15/2012)

Frances Harding (9/12/1981 – 8/15/2012) She had the same birthday as Barry White and she thought she was Marvin Gaye, Janis Joplin, and Jim Morrison reincarnated all at once.  She defied any Atmosphere lyric, she sang any Ani, and she wrote with the fervor of Vonnegut.  May she find the peace and light that will carry her on to her next journey.  Some RatDog was something Frances enjoyed...
