Aunt Doris, I'm so sorry for your loss. My brother (Wayne) and I, along with our mother Joan (and family), are with you in spirit at this difficult time. Even though opportunities to congregate in recent years became more minimal due to health reasons, it was always easy to see how much you both adored each other when we did connect. Frank was always friendly, a pleasure to socialize with, and a true gentleman. He will be missed. We offer our deepest sympathies.
