Francis was a very good neighbor to have in our condo Assn. Knew him only 2 years. Enjoyable to visit with about his heritage and things he did. God Bless his soul.

So enjoyed the many visits with Francis especially years ago when we were neighbors and we would go for eggs and visit with both Francis and mom Ella . And of course as a teenager helping with making hay then ending the day with a large meal 2 beers and seconds for food was a must. Such good people. now sitting here in Francis’s former family home\farm I hope he is pleased with us now caring and loving his home as he did. We are honored. I only wish he could have seen it one last time. Blessings to you… Read more »
