  1. Oh Dola and boys!: Ray and I were so sad to hear of Fran’s passing. A kinder gentler soul there never was, and we always enjoyed running into him at St. Joseph’s Bazaar every year, and places like the PO, Stewarts, shops around town. He never had anything but a big smileto let you know it was a pleasure to see you! He will be missed, and for us, the bazaar will never be the same, I can tell you! :0/

    Hugs to all of you, and I know you all appreciate what a special person we had in our lives. They just plain don’t make ’em as nice as Fran! Rest in piece Francis!

  2. I’m so sorry to hear this. Heart broken actually. In the summer I’d see him every day when I delivered the mail!!! RIP Mr. Deloff! I wish I was in town to attend the funeral!
