If you remember to return to my blog, I will take that as a compliment. If not, the tributes are more important anyway. I apologise for my somewhat choppy writing style right now. Writing my own tribute, and reading some of the others, has been an emotionally wrenching experience.
I fear I did not do Francis Esposito the justice he deserved, although I did give him my best. His tribute was one of the hardest things I have ever written. Simply signing up for this project had more of an impact on me than I'd expected. When I saw the name of the man I'd been assigned, I was overwhelmed.
In many ways I feel a very personal connection to Frank now. I am sure I will remember him on every anniversary, and at other times as well. I hope that some of my readers will remember him as well. And I ask any of my readers who may know a member of his family, please, if you do not think it will be more painful, forwared a copy to them, with my best wishes.
