    Please accept our deepest sympathies for your loss. I knew Frank since our mothers were sisters and Frank and I were born the same year. Please feel free to contact us if the family wishes to. We would love to see and to talk with any of the family. I can not attend the funeral because I have doctors appointments preparing for another cataract surgery Wednesday. Again our deepest sympathies.
