Francis, his wife & kids spent many a happy occasion in Chisholm at our apartment & at Dummer’s Beach at the Dufour camp. This couple & my parents were such good friends. Francis was my brother Philip’s Godfather. In fact, Phil’s middle name was the same as Francis’ middle name (if I’m not mistaken). It’s so sad to hear if his passing. Those were precious, happy days. Love you Francis. You were always a happy face to behold.
