Dear Nell,
I am in town visiting my Dad and Eleanor this week and drove through the old neighborhood 2 days ago. I saw the new owners of your home as I drove through getting their mail and brought back memories of you at that mailbox as we drove by on so many occasions growing up. I asked Eleanor and Dad about you guys and they told me of Frank's recent passing. I am really sorry to hear the news. I have wonderful memories of growing up neighbors, cub scouts at your home and all my visits via my bicycle. I remember our visit in 2005 at moms passing. No words can express my sympathy But my thoughts and prayers are with you. I enjoyed viewing all your family photos and what a beautiful family you have. Your legacy is well intact. Just know I'm thinking of you at this time. I'm currently in ATL enroute back to Michigan this week. I'm sure our paths will cross again. Love, Don Rosen Jr.
