    Frances , I am so sorry to hear about Frank’s passing. I was looking forward to us getting together for lunch or a visit. I would have been in touch, but I had hand surgery a month ago and my wife had complications from neck surgery in July. Hasn’t been a good fall. I valued you both as friends and loyal customers at Rite Aid. I will keep you in my thoughts and hope to still see you in the near future. God bless you and your family and comfort you during these sad times.

    My prayers are with you. I will miss Frank - his patriotism, his service to his country, his quirky humor, and his knowledge and support of our history. Peace to you and his entire family. Annette
