The day I brought Craig home Frans face lit up and he held and kissed Craig and told him they were going to be buddies . They were the best of buddies and Frans face never ceased to light up for Craig or Craig's for his Buddy /Grandpa..I will forever remember the love, the lit up face and the appreciation of their relationship.
I will miss having him in Craig's life but am so thankful he was there for almost 14 yrs of his life.

Thank you Fran...We love and miss you so very much ..Keep watch over Craig
