Aunt Barb, Nancy, Sandy, Tom & Jerry,
You are in our thoughts and prayers at your time of loss. Uncle Frank was a great man and I have many fond memories of him and especially as a youngster thinking how cool it was that he got to work on a train. Unfortunately we cannot make it home for the service but Laurie and I send our deepest and most heartfelt condolences.
