Your service in World war Two is both recognized and appreciated. Those who donned uniforms and served in those perlious times were much more than the Greatest Generation, they were the troops that saved future generations. For this we are grateful.
RIP Soldier.

Alice and Family, so sorry to read of Frank's passing. He was always so nice to John and me when we saw both of you at Elk's functions. If you remember, he was kind enough to build me an English tea cart! Still use it. Having lost John in April '12, I know what a loss this is for you. Keep the happy memories in your heart always. RIP Frank.
