Keeping the family in our thoughts in the loss of Mr. John Franklin. He and my dad, James Gibbs, were childhood friends in the Lake Comfort community and remained friends as the served their country during WW 2 in the US army and upon return to the county. He will be remembered as a hard working farmer who loved working the land. God bless each of you as you cherish his memory. Sharon and Reid
