I am so sorry for your loss. Even though I never met her, I know she had to be a very special person. I know Francis and AL and both are very special. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

I am so very sorry for the family's loss. I have never met Mrs. Deschenes but i know she must have been a very special person because I know Frances who is a very special person and a great friend and they do say that an apple doesn't fall far from the tree. I thank the family for your Mother's service, GO ARMY! My thoughts and prayers are with you during this trying time and wish for you the best.
