    Dear Family, My deepest condolences to everyone. Uncle Frank was really loved by all. I feel so greatful that I was able to speak with him twice while back home for the Christmas holiday. I’m sorry that I can’t come back to attend the service and celebrate his life with all of you. I will really miss him!
