Please pray for the peaceful repose of the soul of Jennie Franch who passed Friday afternoon. We were blessed to have her with us for 96 ½ years. What an incredible daughter/sister for her family, wife to our Dad, mother to her three sons, Nonna to her grandchildren, Bisnonna to her great grandchildren, and loyal friend to many! She is so loved and will be missed every day! RIP, Mom...always in our hearts!

Death is nothing at all. I have only slipped away into the next room.
I am I, and you are you. Whatever we were to each other that we still are.
Call me by my old familiar name, speak to me in the easy way which you always used.
Put no difference in your tone, wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow.
Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.
Let my name be ever the household word that it always was,
let it be spoken without effect, without the trace of shadow on it.
Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was; there is unbroken continuity.
[There is absolute and unbroken continuity. What is this death but a negligible accident?]
Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?
I am waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just around the corner.
All is well.
