Dear Family
We send our deepest condolences to you,
Love John and Elizabeth

Fran, we are so sorry for your loss & we are here for you & want to comfort you. Please let us know if we can help you in anyway! Love you!

Thank you Louie for being the best friend and companion a girl could ask for. You made Fran smile and that made all of us happy too. You will be missed but add just one more of the good ones to meet in heaven. Until we meet, watch over your sweet Fran and enjoy your blessings above. (I call my husband, my bull as a term of endearment too). That means you made us feel protected and cared for in so many ways.

A Jo Isten aldasa kiserje emlekeded. Soha nem felejtelek el kedves “batyam”Te voltal fiatal korom mentorja. Te tamogattal te vezetel. Igazitotad utamat. Igazi jo barat maradtal eletem vegeig. Legyen nyugalmad csendes.

Such a blessing that you, Frankie, & Louie found each other. I know in time the sorrow will lessen & make room for remembering the blessings. Meanwhile, know that we all share in your grief & that of all Louie’s family.
