Just Some Sad Stuff

In the past months, two of my close friends have lost their mothers. This has prompted me to appreciate my own mother and the step-mother that raised me.
I have re-posted the obit for my dear friend below:

Sally Ann Francis, 58 Escondido-- She wanted so little for herself and so much for her family. Sally Ann Francis passed away peacefully on Saturday March 21, 2009, in San Diego, CA. She is survived by her loving husband of 36 years, Robert William Francis Sr.; and her four children, Margaret Mary, Catherine O'Mally, Robert William Jr., and Mary Elizabeth; she is also survived by her four siblings, Tom Evans, Charles Evans, Kate Evans and Peggy Kargel. Sally was born in Baltimore, Maryland on August 10, 1950, to the late Frances St. Leger Evans and Charles F. Evans. Sally worked as a special education teacher's aide in the classroom for the Escondido Union School District for 19 years. She had a fierce passion for history, thoroughly enjoyed reading and knitting in her spare time. She always thought of others and gave so much of herself. Sally devoted her life to her family and was the best mother and wife anyone could ever ask for. She will be deeply missed and always loved. In lieu of flowers memorial funds can be sent to the Little Sisters of the Poor, 601 Maiden Choice Lane, Baltimore, Md. 21228. A closed funeral took place at the Resurrection Catholic Church in Escondido on March 30, 2009, and an open celebration of life memorial will take place at 11 a.m., Thursday, April 16, 2009, at the Resurrection Catholic Church in Escondido.
