Dear Frank, Dave and Dani. We were so happy to spend a few Thanksgivings and other weekends with Frank and Shirley at your home. We will remember those days. I know how difficult it is to let go of this special person. Rest assured that God held her hand and met her in heaven. Keep all the good memories flowing and God will give you the strength you need to get you through this difficult time. Our prayers will continue for you and this beautiful lady. We are here for you.

Our sympathies go to husband Frank and son David. We will say prayers for her.
(Could you please have David send his address as some neighbors would like to send a sympathy card.)
