Sherburne lost a very great man, as did his family. Francis would always have a joke to tell us, on his daily coffee visits to Judy's Coffee Shop. We miss him already.... RIP Francis...……………

To the Family & Relatives of Francis: Unfortunately we never met, However my husband and I were very fond of Francis and all the times we met at the D&D Diner or Bills Diner either for a snack or a meal. Francis was always full of conversation and one of the nicest and smartest men we've met. Always quick to tell a joke or share a story of the past and present. We will miss him greatly and send our most sincere condolences to all family and relatives. Heaven has acquired another angel to watch over us until we meet again. God Bless!! The Smith's
