Nana was always so good to me. There was never a time that i walked through Ardillo's restaurant without giving her a big hug...and her expecting me to do so! When Nana asked how I was doing, she didn't want a one word answer. She wanted me to sit down and truly visit. I'd be foolish to think she only did this with me...she was kind and loving to everyone. May your beautiful family find peace during this hard time. All my love, Dair

Dear Ardillo Family,
I extend my deepest sympathy to you on the loss of your dearest love one Mrs Mary Francis. We know that she is absent in the physical and present in the spirit.
Amite won't be the same when I visit. I remember the many times she would call or come by to see my grandmother her dear friend.
May God bless and give each of you strength and grace to celebrate her life.
