I had a dream about our Francis last night. He was just arriving in Heaven, and he said to Jesus, “Gosh! This is a big place. Where am I gonna sit?” And Jesus answered, using the same words that Francis always used before he told another of his stories, “Got a good one for ya.”

Our Francis is sure to have one of the best seats in the House.

Love and condolences to you, Mary, and to your wonderful kids.
