Dear Marie,

I am not sure if you remember me or not but this is SHaron Leach, Dr. Frederick Leach’s sister who use to take care of your dogs over 25 years ago. I am so sorry for your loss and let you know my thoughts and prayers are with you. I remember a very few people from way back when but I do remember the special relationship you had with my brother.

You will definitely be missed by all. You are an uncle to my children as you treated them as you’ll own, they love you dearly. You were there to help at a minute notice day or night. You will always be my “warlock” as I will be the “witch”,however you have exchanged your broom for angel wings to watch us from above.

My prayers and love goes out to you Marie as always. My God be your strength to help you through your time of sorrow.

Frank, I hate to hear of your passing. You have always been a friend to me, you would drop what ever you were doing to run and help any time I need it, it didn’t matter what it was, you always treated me like a son. When we met I was 18 and a long way from home, you and Marie were like my second parents. I will always be greatful for that. I know you are in a better place where there is no more pain, and God will wipe away all tears. We are going to miss you Ol’ Friend. I know you will be watching over us.
