As the son-in-law of Frank Escano, I have many fond memories of the last 40 years as a part of his family. But this is a THANK YOU to those who have been so kind and loving to Dianne over the last 5 years that she has been a caretaker for her mom & dad. Having to scale back her teaching career and other activities was very stressful and demanding. She couldn’t have done it without you.

Hello,

I am truly sorry for your loss. I worked at Bayside Health Care Center while Mr. Escano was there. I checked on him and joked with him about sharing part of the same name Franchesca and Francisco and he would often laugh. I want you to know that he is not forgotten and that his roommate and I miss him very dearly. I pray that he stays in your heart and that your heart will be at perfect peace……..Be blessed

Thank you

Your family was a large part of my childhood because of the friendship between our parents. Although we became distant moving into adulthood, you are always remembered. I will always remember your father’s smile–he is a gentle spirit. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
