I am deeply saddened by the loss of Aunt Francis. She was simply wonderful and so much fun to be around. Somehow, she understood her mischievous, little nephew who always looked forward to visiting Winchester. I still hold such fond childhood memories of time spent with my Aunt Francis and all my cousins. Please know that my family and I hold you close in our thoughts and prayers.
