Jonathan Francis and his daughter Viola Francis were taken from their family and friends way too soon. Both went missing after a kayaking trip. Family and friends searched tirelessly for weeks. After approximately 3 weeks of searching with no answers, both were finally found. The families now have a sense of closure but are severely grief stricken with this tragedy. Now facing funeral expenses, the families are asking for any assistance that anyone may be able to donate. Your help would be greatly and dearly appreciated.
I have set this site up to help the families raise funds for the funeral expenses. For anyone unfamiliar with my association to this fundraiser, I am the brother of Lisa Back, who is also Jonathan's sister and I am friends with Viola's mother. I will personally see to it that every penny donated will go to the families to help them through this very difficult time. Any amount you would be able to donate would mean a great deal. If you are not comfortable donating to this site, donations can also be made to Walker Funeral Home in Norwalk, Ohio.
