Mrs. Francis, Natalie, Susan, LouAnn and families: My deepest and sincere condolences at this time of grief. Know that he loved you all more than words can express. He was the epitome of a gentleman and friend. I have an empty spot in my heart knowing that I have lost a true friend that can never be replaced. Much love and prayers go out to all of you.
