Fred Couse from Pine Plains , NY

"Mrs Francis’ passing is the official end of an era for me; one that had me as a frequent guest in her home as I was a young man. Many thoughts and memories occurred for me on learning of her passing. My best wishes for Mark, Katie, and grandchildren"

Bill Brewer from Red zHook, NY

"We fondly remember two of the finest colleagues we ever had and the superintendent whose leadership will never be forgotten. Upon their retirement we had the good fortune to travel to Nantucket together for a great start to summer. We rode mopeds all over the island with the two retirees always hot on our tail. What a memory of two special people."

Scott Chase from Pine Plains, NY
