Francis---I worked with him at Miner Institute and when I was helping during tax time at the Senior Center, I always looked forward to seeing Francis. I only stopped by to see him at Meadow Brook once when he was there. What a lovely man! I am sure that he missed Helen all those years that he was all one. I never saw him without his smile and what a lovely smile. Judy Heintz
