Hi Marta Can't believe Frank has passed; seems life should go on forever; also can't believe Dave and him passed away on the same day; almost like father and son in the work place; how fitting how God works; sending our sympathy to you, Richard, Karin and your grandsons; Frank's sister, Gloria. Have so many fond memories of our families working days together; you said not working friends; friends/friends. Know we are holding your hands thru these trying times; we feel yours. May we all be blessed at this time. We still stay in touch with so many friends in Raleigh. Josie gave me the news; Brian and Nancy also send their condolences. Hugs and love Gail, and Dave, in his memory.
