To the family of Doris Yacone, I am sorry for your loss. I used to sit in the pew at St.Luke in front of the Yacones during Mass. I got to know them. Frank liked to say prayers in Latin. She was very special. May she rest in heaven with her husband and son.

Aunt Dolores always spoke to me about the day she married and I know she would love for everyone to see her and Frank on one of her most cherished days which happened in January of 1955. May you rest in peace with all your loved ones who passed before you. Love and miss you - Lisa, Laura, Ronald
