To Francis’s family our deepest condolences. Francis was a lovely, lovely man we so enjoyed meeting him on the Northside and also the Southside. He was a great supporter of the Kerry Association & a very proud Kerry Man. He is happy now to be reunited with his lovely Mary. We are so sorry we will miss his wake & funeral as we are out of town. John Joe & Bríd Griffin, Oak Lawn
