I chose the idea of making it one story after Francine passed away. I felt like it would give me the best showcase for listing the achievements of this most remarkable woman. While I have made an attempt at keeping times and dates accurate, there is probably a lot of errors.
Most of the names mentioned are the actual names of the people involved. In some cases we couldn’t remember the correct name or changed it to protect the guilty.
Also I have chosen not to follow a time line but to switch back and forth along the 100 plus years covered in this story.
