Dearest Francia, I have known you for as long as I have known myself. I am so blessed to have crossed life paths with you and even more blessed that God willed for you to have had such a special presence in my life as my god-sister, neighbour and friend. I will forever remember your buoyant cheer, humour, conviction and faith. The years that separated us were of no matter in how easily you related to me. God bless you for being a shining example of living faith to me. God bless you and Richard for being a fine inspiration of married life and family to me and I’m sure to so many others. You represented life for me–always. Still can’t believe I won’t be hearing your voice or be able to hug you again, but I will hold you in my heart always!
