A few days earlier on March 6, the date of Francis M.’s death anniversary, Maxene wrote, “It’s been 10 years and yet it still feels like it was just yesterday when we lost you. I admit I still miss you everyday and wish you were still here with us. But I am at peace knowing that you’re happily watching over us from heaven—far from all the pain and suffering.”
Francis M. passed away on March 6, 2009, after battling leukemia.
