In memory of a star +++++++ Boom. There it is. The smile that could power half a nation from the minute he walked into a place. Francis was someone who always made you feel like you were the only and most important person on the planet in that exact moment. He was: connector, facilitator, guardian, the battery power behind a whole community. Always there with the massive smile, the filthy laugh, the kind words of wisdom, the ‘I love you so much’ voice note, the much needed reality check. “He took me under his wing” has been the most repeated refrain in our friendship group over the last few weeks. The thing is, the number of people who share this recollection of him is nothing short of mind blowing. What an extraordinary gift to have given us. How incredible to have known him, what a multiplier of joy. So, when the sadness lifts, I feel like the only question I will want to ask myself in any given situation is: What would Francis do?
Much love everyone xx
