Wishing I could
be there with you today, Aunt Ginny. As you know, Uncle Frank was my favorite.
Just received your letter which of course made us very sad. We immediately started
remembering the good times we spent with Frank and there were many. The Army time spent with Frank will never be forgotten.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you Ginny and your family.
