If there ever was a man totally absorbed by his family and his business, it was Francis. And both were better for his energy, time and dedication. As were so many of us who came to depend upon him during sad and solemn moments of our lives when we lost loved ones. Barbara and I want to offer our most sincere condolences to Theresa and the entire Iacovelli family. While COVID keeps us apart, please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Tess, Patrice, John, Rob and family, I am so very sorry for your loss of Francis. I sit with both of them and helped them with their needs. Your Dad came out with some funny one liners when Tess called to him, she called him sweetheart. what are we doing today, Francis casually turns and says, washing the car! One time Tess would call sweetheart, again Francis would turn with a blank face and Tess would blow him kisses. Francis said, behave yourself! He will be sorely missed. My condolences to you.
