    Auntie Helene – You will be missed greatly, but I am glad you are not in pain any longer and at peace. Please send my love to those angels in heaven that you will be seeing again. We will miss you!

    Dear Frank,
    We are very sorry to hear of your mom’s passing. I always enjoyed talking to her, especially at those block parties.
    Rick just sent us the obituary, and before I read it, Bob and I planned to go, not knowing it’s now. We can’t get there in time. I just cancelled my paper last week, or we might have known sooner.
    We’re still in the same house, and now you have our e-mail address, maybe when the dust settles for you, we can talk about old times.
    See you’ve been busy having three kids. I hope they’re as good as you were as a kid.
    Hope to hear from you soon.
