May God give you all peace and comfort in the passing of Pepere. Beth and I so wish we could be there to give our love and support in person, but please know that we're thinking of you all this morning.
God's blessings on your family as they say good-bye to a loved one and friend. My prayers are with you. 71 years is a long time Laura, but I'm sure life is going to be so very different for you. I'm sure Helen won't let you sit around and not do anything. God bless. I will say one of my for him, and another for you and your family. Love Fr. Gary
I am so sorry for your loss. I know Uncle Fran as a kind, gentle and funny man, so I am sure this is difficult for all of you. I am happy I will be able to see you all this week-end as you give him a much deserved send-off.
Love and peace, Flo
I am certain this loss will be difficult for all of you since Uncle Fran was always top notch in my book. I remember so vividly from childhood when you all would visit Worcester and he would be in the yard playing with us! A real foreign idea from our perspective. Later when I spent time living and visiting in Wisconsin, I would listen to his stories and he would show me his treasures gathered from using the metal detector or his coin collection, or the many many other interesting tidbits of information/experiences he stored up in his long life. I will miss him dearly even though I have not been right there for what seems like an awfully long time. I cannot wait to see everyone, although under other circumstances would be much more preferred. Lots of love... Jeanne
