Please accept my sympathy in the passing of your mom. Both your dad and mom were my favorites among the Frase second cousins. My mom thought so highly of them too. I could always talk and joke with Evelyn and enjoyed seeing her at the reunions. My faith tells me that we will all see each other again and that's what carries us through these times of grief.
With Love and Sympathy,
Loretta and the Zarle family
(My grandparents were Mel and Gertie Frase and my mom was LaVerne Frase.)
