Sadly, the Valkries came this afternoon to call François to a higher purpose. He has crossed the rainbow bridge and is now doing glorious battle in Vallhalla with all the other fallen warriors from history.
Services for François will be held in the bathroom in about 15 minutes. We will by playing his favourite opera at full volume, and the neighbors can suck it.
In lieu of flowers, you may wish to make a gift to the Nature Conservancy, which was François’ favourite charity.
