Courtney and Deric your mother was one my best friends for many of years and as we got older and lost touch with each other with never lost our friendship. About two months ago I pick her up at Barb’s house here in Marion and we went to the Moose and talk for a few hours and all she talked about was you kids and how much she loves you. She always had a way to make you laugh and her smile was one you could never forget. For some god known reason she called me Francis dont know why she just always said I look like a Francis to her.
