No words can adequately express our sorrow for your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Karen, I can never forget the birth of your son when I was in San Francisco, nor the time we stayed at your home on our way to Japan with our son. Francis was, and is, a special person, a special soul. We can never know God's plan for anyone, but we will all strive to find meaning in his passing.
We love you dearly.
