I remember when you met my sister, Edna you told your mother - that is who I'm going to marry! And you did- for many years.
The first child, Ronnie, became like a little brother to me - before I left home! You had a very special family.
I wonder if you and my Doyle have seen each other yet!!! Both of you were enjoying each other's company before he and you became ill!
Now! Someday down the road - I look forward to all of our big reunion as one big family! From Fran
