    My deepest condolences to Judy, Eric, Thomas, and the rest of the family on the Passing of Franz. His legacy of hard work and kindness will live on in the hearts of those who knew him. I was always impressed by Franz hard work ethic that required physical labour and late retirement. He was very affectionate when he spoke about both my late father and grandfather. I will always be grateful for him being there for me and my family during some difficult times.
