I'm so sorry to hear of his passing. I worked with Francis several years ago in Baxter Springs, Ks. He was always a very kind man.

Jan and Frances were among our very best friends. We always had a good time when we got together. I never knew Frances was a grump. I will miss him and his dry sense of humor. --Gary Pigg

I have such fond memories of my summer stays with Uncle Buttons and Aunt Janice. I'll always remember his quiet kindness and that sparkle in his eyes when he smiled. -Tammy Lankard-Farnham
