Bill and Brenda sorry to hear about Uncle Frank. I still have many memories of visits we had when we were teens. Even though I haven't seen or been in touch with you guys, I still think of you. You can get in touch with me through my email. We have notified Vuleen and Helen the only two remaining brothers and sisters.
