  • Randy and Wendy Francis says:

    Dear Anne/ Jeff and family,
    We were so sorry to hear that your mom passed away. We always enjoyed her visits to PEI, she was always so much fun. And she and Willard were so good to me when I was in Calgary in my younger years, great dinners when I needed a home cooked meal! We will miss her. Wish we lived closer so we could attend the service, you will be in our thoughts and prayers.
    With Love, Randy, Wendy, Jesse and Magen.

    We are never ready to say Goodbye… Those we cherish will always live on in our hearts and memories. Remember the joy of loving.
    With caring thoughts and our deepest sympathy .

  • Graeme Francis says:

    We are so sorry for your loss. My family (Rory, Ann, and kids) spent the vacation of a lifetime at the lake house on the Okanagan in ’95. We were supposed to stay for a few days, and ended up there for a week! Bernice and Willard were so generous with us kids, and I’ll never forget it. My wife Amra and I got a chance to see them again in what Bernice called the “tin house” down in Arizona a few years back, and had a great evening with them, of course. Their verve and joie de vivre will be missed.
    With deepest sympathy,
    Graeme and Amra

    • Adam Francis says:

      Amazing memories of that time Graeme is referring to and time spent with Bernice and Willard was always a Francis’ kids’ highlight. Bernice’s zest for life is something that always resonated with me and will continue live on.

      Love Adam
