    Francis was my Big Brother. We loved one another unconditionally. He didn’t think I was too short, too heavy, too dumb. I thought he was the best story teller in the world. The best hunter, the best rancher, the best buildier, the best chef, the very best brother in the whole world, a real Hero. I will love you forever, and ever, Francis.
