For the repose of the handmaid of God Francine
« on: November 15, 2017, 12:25:06 PM »
Please remember Francine in your prayers who passed away during the night.  She was the mother of a very good friend of mine and, in many ways, a mother to many of the denizens of my friend's bar.  She had been in hospice for about a week before passing away peacefully after what seems to be an incredibly long battle with cancer. 

Please also remember her son Travis who was with her until the end and took wonderful care of her while managing to, well, manage his establishment.
