Francisco was kind, caring, and funny. He greeted us with cheerfulness as he was bringing out his dogs, Dixie and Lucy, for their walks. Other dogs wagging their when they saw Francisco coming, there would be a treat in his pouch for them. I liked talking with him, he was always gentlemanly yet often funny. I will miss him much as a dear friend. To Crisco and family, I get my heartfelt condolences.

Dear Lopez Family members:
It was with great grief AND sorrow that over 33 years ago we said good-bye to Frank's Mother, Teofila Lopez. She was such a cherished friend. I do NOT forget to pray for her soul!
I, too, extend my deepest sympathy to the family and will pray for his eternal rest.
