    So sorry I did not know of Frank’s passing until today while talking to you. I would have read it in the paper had we not been flooded out.
    Because I lived out of state so long, I did not get to know your husband well nor your children. I am sure it has been hard for you for a while now since he has been in ill health for a while. You are special to be and so I care that you have loved someone you have loved for so many years.
