    Geri, I am very sorry to hear of Frank’s passing. My Mom and I used to enjoy talking to him at McDonald’s in Bristol. He spoke lovingly of you and that is why she made you a lap quilt. May it bring you comfort as you go through this difficult time.

    My prayers are with you and your family, Donna (Manning) Motyl

    Cindy, my deepest sympathies for the loss of your dad.

      Thank you Donna. It’s quite difficult losing my dad and it was very sudden. No time to emotionally prepare. I had about 6 weeks with him.
