    I miss you daddy, you saved me when I couldn’t save myself.

    Fran, my brother, over the past several weeks I have had time to get to know you in a way that is forever between you and me. Thank you for that time and thank you for letting me keep my promise to you and letting me be with you at your final breath, and you will forever be with me. Your pain has ended and for that I shall remain indebted to our Lord. I love you but by now you may be tired of hearing me say it!! And thank you for telling me the same! Rest easy now and visit when you can!

    My uncle, you were always a mystery to me. Raisinettes and drum sets – and I’m pretty sure all your shirts had holes. You gave me a childhood friend and for that I thank you. Your stairway to heaven was arduous but you made it. We will see you again in time Uncle Fran.

    My first son, I borrowed you for 63 years and now God has taken you back to be at peace. Will miss you as my favorite tennis commentator, also the laugh you had when something hit you real funny.

    To my brother:
    One night I dreamed a dream.
    As I was walking along the beach with my Lord.
    Across the dark sky flashed scenes from my life.
    For each scene, I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand,
    One belonging to me and one to my Lord.

    After the last scene of my life flashed before me,
    I looked back at the footprints in the sand.
    I noticed that at many times along the path of my life,
    especially at the very lowest and saddest times,
    there was only one set of footprints.

    This really troubled me, so I asked the Lord about it.
    “Lord, you said once I decided to follow you,
    You’d walk with me all the way.
    But I noticed that during the saddest and most troublesome times of my life,
    there was only one set of footprints.
    I don’t understand why, when I needed You the most, You would leave me.”

    He whispered, “My precious child, I love you and will never leave you
    Never, ever, during your trials and testings.
    When you saw only one set of footprints,
    It was then that I carried you.”

    I only got to meet you when your days were short. I could tell if you were having a good day or bad. On a good day you would smile and laugh when we met. On a bad day, you would just turn away because you didn’t want to share the pain. Now that the pain is over, may your family and friends remember only the good days when your smile was bright, and your laugh was infectious.

    I am so sorry for the loss of Fran, such a precious and gentle son, father, brother, husband, uncle and friend. I will always remember your quick wit and hearty laugh. Thank you Fran for sharing yourself and loving family with all.

I love you daddy, and I hope you had a really good birthday up in heaven, I tried to do the things you would enjoy doing today, jeez this sucks so bad.
