  1. Dear Carol & Blake, My heartfelt sympathy in the loss of your husband and father. Even though it\’s been years, when I read this morning of Frank\’s passing, the memories of your love to your husband, and the respect shown to your father filled my mind. We lost my mom in 1994 at the young age of 58, and today she would have been 69. The days ahead will bring many good thoughts and memories of how lucky your family was to have him in your lives. If you need anything I can be reached at 714.206.9537. Sincerely, Carol Burton
