A fabulous reception followed at The Wood Fire Trattoria in Dowagiac, ending the day with more music, great food and camaraderie. Franz would not have wanted anyone to mourn him taking his next journey and while there were certainly tears that day, the ovewhelming feeling was love and joy as we remembered the man who touched us all so profoundly in so many ways.
Special thanks to everyone who came to Franz's memorial but especially to the following for their extraordinary contributions:
McLauchlin-Clark Funeral Home, Apostolic Lighthouse Church, The Wood Fire Trattoria, Marcus Belgrave, Joan Bow Belgrave, Chris Carani, Robert Cousins, Charlie Gabriel, Yves Francois, Judi K, Otto Kubik, Jr., Terry Martin, Billy Nicks, Lisa Roti, Jim Pickley, Charlie Smith, Darrel Tidaback, Brad Yazel and Van Young.
