Dear Margaret,

Words can not express the way we feel at this very moment. I still can’t believe that papa is gone. I know in my heart that he knows that we all love & miss him. I just wished that I would have came by more often.He never had a chance to see our baby girl.I will carry him in my heart for always. All the memories I have from when I was a child & until now will stay deep into my heart!! We would like to come by & see you when you’re up to it. Please take care. we love you!

Frank was very dear to me. I thought of him as my adopted Daddy. He made us laugh a lot! I loved him and will miss him greatly.

I am so sorry for your loss.

God be with you all in your dark hours, and if I can do anything for you, I am here for you always, and hope you know that you’re never alone.

I will never forget Frank in the yard with the garden hose! When he sent our dogs home wet and happy, it made us laugh a lot and usually go out to see him. He was the only Dad I knew for the last few years. I love and miss him very much. You know Betty and I are here for you if you need anything!

We love you all.
