    Maria & Family,
    Our condolences on Frank's passing. As next door neighbors for the last 7 1/2 years we have to say we have had more than a few laughs with Frank. I used to go over in the summer to see the garden and he would point out all his favorites & always offer me some of his veggies. We will miss the sound of his accordion which we heard many warm summer afternoons. He will be missed.

    Lydia, Archie and Family, my sincerest condolences in the loss or your father, your Dad was always a lot of fun and I remember sitting down with him years ago and having a few glasses of wine. He was always so proud of his two children.
