KENNEWICK, WA- The City of Kennewick officially made February 28th San D. Francisco Day to celebrate his life and Francisco's service.

Francisco's birthday is actually February 29th, so they called this day his "almost birthday".

Francisco's sister, who has never given up trying to bring him back, said this day meant a lot.

"This day is an accumulation of a journey to bring my brother's remains home and this has gotten us one step closer to having that dream come true.  Having him honored and a day named after him in his own city is truly overwhelming,"

Mayor Steve Young read the Proclamation while his family and friends celebrated their hometown friend.
