Its hard to say goodbye and more to someone that can be consider as young and with much more to live and do. I strongly believe that death is a natural part of life and if you are old (70+), have lived enough, and complete all your goals in life then you should not be afraid of dying cause its what is next in life, its natural. But if someone is young, full of energy and passing, then passing away is one of the worst things that can happen. Unfortounly this happend to our dear Franco, I stroingly believe that is unfair what happened to him.
I never had the chance to meet him, but Franco If you are reading this message from the heaven, or form where your soul is right now, I want to thank you. I want to thank you for what you have donde to the cannabis comunity and most importantly for the world. Because you haved the balls to be in the cannabis industry not mattering if will be economicly profitable, you didnt care if you were making money when you decided to get into the cannabis industry. You dindt care about what other people think about you, you did this because your passion and because you strongly believe in you ideals no matter waht, and you fought for it.
I must say that you were a brave man and still are a brave soul. I must say that you helped to cannabis to be seen as a "not bad thing" from the people (specially the conservative ones). And in my oppinion you made your manly goal and now that you have left this world Arjan is taking care of your goals both had.
Also I want to say that if cannabis is one day legal in whatever country you will be part of that achivement, and if cannabis becomes legal in another country you again will be part of that achive, and in the next country you will be also part of the achivement and on and on on every country.
Thanks for your passion and determination the world is now a better place, because we all know the power of cannabis.
I and many people are greatfull with you and will ever be! thank you! And I know that arjan is going to keep your legacy. We will never forget of you Franco a great grower, and most importantly: a Great human being

May Franco's enthusiasm and zeal for life and cannabis... be forever memorialized. I have learned so much about cannabis (1000's of hours) and share his dedication and passion for the healing properties of this plant.
The sadness an irony of his passing (in an area where he regularly showed his empathy and concern for the local people) to a disease like Malaria, shouldn't be forgotten by any of us. I cannot understand this... other than to believe that Franco's Higher Power... wanted Franco as his own personal Hunter/friend.
This is all that makes any sense to me. I cannot imagine how those closest to him are handling this right now.
Peace was always with Franco... and will forever be.
May "peace" be with all of his family and loved ones who will miss him.
See you soon, Brother.

I am not sure how or what to say. What I do know is I must say something. The Idea that a group of man would trek the world to perserve what is to me and many the worlds most effective medical plants just blew my mind. I could only dream of doing such a thing. I am inspiered and driven by your love and passion for us all. The way and reason is what I gravitate towards. Thank you for all that you have done and all that you have and will influence in such a positive way. YOur values careicture will always be a corner stone in my ventures. My Condolences to his family and friends.
