To the family,
Please accept my condolences at this most difficult time. I didn’t know Mr Francis, but reading through the other entries in this shows that he was a very good man. Leaning on friends and family and relishing good memories will carry you through. May the God of Comfort, Jehovah, give you what you need to carry on. John 5:28,29 promises a resurrection to all of our dear loved ones. Remembering Gods promises for our future gives us something to look forward to.

Sorry to hear about this, I will be praying for y'all.

Pat, Greg and the rest of the family of Francis,
You all are in our thoughts and prayers at this very difficult time. Wishing we were able to make the trip to say goodbye, but work has kept us from doing so. Francis was a great man and we are thankful we got to visit with him and Pat this last summer on their visit to Missouri. Will miss all his posts on Facebook. He always had a good joke, pictures of fast muscle cars, cute animals and posts about faith in God. That faith gives us comfort, knowing one day we will see him again! Hugs and continued prayers for you all!

Dear Pat, it's hard to say good bye to a love one. I wish I had words to ease your heartache, but cherish your memories as they do help. Thank you Pat for coming by this morning. Support from friends is also helpful.

I’m sorry for your loss. All are in my prayers. God never gives us more than we can handle even when we feel it is more than we can get through. I wish I could come and comfort you in person but I am feeding some cows and working the backhoe. Just can’t make it happen. I pray for gods comfort and peace. And that you can focus and praise god for the positive things and not just dwell on negative of this bodily death but the positive of resurrection life eternal
