Happy Birthday, Daddy! I miss having you here to call and wish a Happy Day! I will miss you celebrating your birthday with Kyle's....the first one in 18 years! You are the most amazing man ever! You were my best friend, my disciplinarian, the one who truly took care of me, the one I always knew that I could count on! I hope you are celebrating with mom and maw-maw, paw-paw and Uncle Slick. I know that you are happy to be reunited after so long. I love you so much and I miss you more than ever. My heart breaks everyday, but I know that you are feeling wonderful and you are happy again! I love you, daddy. Keep watching over us! I can't wait to feel your hug again someday!
My Dear sweet Francis it has been over three weeks and I am trying to do and be everything you thought I could be but it is so hard. I miss you so very much. I will love you forever and know I will see you again. I am so glad to hear all the wonderful things that people are saying. everyone saying the wonderful man you are. I am so blessed to have had you for my husband. I am truly glad you are not suffering and are truly happy. Praise God and sing for all of us. Thank you for everything. I will strive to keep our family strong.
Quite a man to have led his family to be such beautiful and caring people! Heartfelt hugs to you all....
Metta and I share your grief and longing. We both were honored by Francis' friendship for nearly 30 years and we were honored to be with the family at the moving services. I had an opportunity to honor Francis at an industry event last week and I was impressed but not surprised by the positive reaction to my small tribute. My friend was loved by many and he deserved it.
I love you, daddy! I miss you so much. I wish you were here with me right now. I wish that I could hear your voice, asking, "how's my baby?" It has been so hard without you, but I do have some comfort knowing that you are feeling great, walking straight and dancing the jitterbug with mom. Give her a great big hug for me. Let her know how much I miss her, too. I love you both with all of my heart. I will talk to you again someday!
My sincere sympathy to the family for the loss of your dear loved one. May you find peace and comfort in Psalms 65:2. Again my deepest sympathy.
To Dianna, Debbie, Jaime, and Stacey, and the rest of Francis family member, please know that you have my deepest sympathies on Francis' passing. I have known Francis over 50 years from the early 1960's with Biehl & Co. and Farrell Lines,Inc. He was my friend and mentor. Francis was a person of great integrity and honesty and professional skills. He will always be in my prayers and thoughts. Goodbye old Friend.
We are thinking of you and your family during this trying time. This was such a shock to all of us.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you Dianne and with the Sharp family. Francis was a special man who left his positive mark on many. He will be fondly remembered by his friends in PA.
Dave and Marilyn Meehan
My prayers are with you and family.
To the family of Francis, I want you to know that he was one of my supervisors at Young & Co. in the early 80's and it did not take long for me to realize that he was a man of great integrity. I highly respected and admired him.
We were greatly saddened to hear of Francis's death. Please accept our sincere condolences. There is little anyone can do or say at a time like this, but we wanted you to know that our thoughts, prayers and deepest sympathy are with the family during these trying times.
Chip & Debbie Coakley

May you be surrounded in God's glorious love and warmth as you mourn your father, and in the coming times when your thoughts will turn back to your dad. I pray those memories will flood you with happiness and joy, and overcome your sorrow.
We love you all,
Vicki & Chuck Hargis and family
