Aunt Emma; I am very sorry for you loss. Uncle Frank was a very special person to me. You and him are like my second parents. Frank was always there for us if we needed him. I remember all the times we were fishing down in Virginia and we were hunting (well I was walking) on your property, and all the combine birthday parties that we had. He will be missed. But be sure that he is always looking down from heaven to you. I love you!!!!!! Eloise
