Francis                                                April, 2012

Today I learned of the passing of a dear man named Francis. 
Francis attended the Cool Arts midweek program for the last few years. He graced our classroom with his boisterous laugh and cheery smiles. Francis often drew pictures of lemons and plums; and his favourite colour was red. Francis will be dearly missed. 

Francis; I hope you've found your new pair of slippers. 

Safe journey good man.
