Our hearts go out to you Uncle Bob, Lindy, Andy & family. May the Spirit of comfort be with you as you reflect on and celebrate Aunty Mave’s life. Long after our time together at Bishops, I will never forget the kindness and generosity shown to us by the Francis family when we first came to Australia. Aunty Mave and Uncle Bob visited often, always armed with goodies to help us build our new life here. Aunty Mave, my loving Aunty, my mum’s best friend, God’s devoted child, we have the blessed assurance that we shall all meet again on that beautiful shore.

A beautiful service befitting a lovely lady, a devoted wife & a wonderful "Miss" who was so involved in the School play for the Prize Distribution day together with her beloved husband "Bob" who was the dynamic leader of the Senior school plays. My deepest condolences to the family. May God in all his Mercy give you the courage to bear this great loss. May her good soul Rest In (eternal) Peace.
