My Aunt Fran
She was my Aunt
She was my Godmother
As I went through life
She was my mentor

I ate at the table in her kitchen
I slept in a bed in a spare room that she had
I enjoyed myself at the “camp” she and Uncle Doug had in Eastbrook
On many an occasion

I could ask for no better Aunt
She had the courage to always connect and relate with my father
Their relationship was never estranged
It was a constant inspiration in my life

She was loving
She was kind
She never held a grudge

To my cousins Russell and Doug
To their wives
To all of their children

May Francis Rodick Gray Rest In Peace
May the Lord have a room for her in his House

Glory always to our Lord ans Savior Jesue Christ
Glory always be to his name
