Memories of Francis
Dad was one of the nicest Men anyone would want to meet. He was a gentle Man. Kind, loving, and Smart. Whenever He and Mom would come to New York to stay with Dennis and I We would have so much fun. We'd go to the Casino and stay out all night and Dad could never get enough of having so much fun there. He was such a good sport and always made the best out of a situation. Dad, You will be truly missed. Love Annette and Dennis xo
