Aunt Helen called to give me the sad news about Frank. You have my deepest sympathy, I know he will be greatly missed by all of you. I still have fond memories of the summers we spent in Philly visiting you and that small pool you had in the back yard that we put as many kids in as possibKle.
Love to you all.
Sorry about the loss of your dear love one. We have a wonderful hope in the near future when God will wipe out every tear from our eyes and death will be no more.-Revelation 21:3&4
