  1. Dear Diana, may the love in your heart help to heal the loss. Wishing you and your family peace and love.

  2. Kay, I am so sorry for your loss. 58 years with someone by your side and suddenly they aren’t there is something I can’t fathom. But the memories that I have of you, Frank and your family is something I cherish. What a wonderful neighborhood we had to grow up in, and you and Frank were my second set of parents on Caledonia (funny, I live on Scotland Rd. now, across the fence from the Caledonia block.) He was a wonderful person and it was a privilege to have know him. Thank you for the great childhood memories I have.

    Steve, Bob and Diane, I know how hard it is to lose your dad (mine has been gone 13 years now). I can’t say that I still think of him every day, wish I could talk to him one more time, get his advice on something. But it’s almost every day. What a wonderful role model you had as a person, a parent, and how a man should be. The kind of people you all have become is a testament to both of your parents. You never get over it, but it does get less painful. Just hold the good memories close, and tell the good stories of your dad often. It helps.
