  1. Dear Frank and family, please accept my sympathy in the loss of your mother, grandmother and matriarch. Losing a mother is heartbreaking no matter their age. May you find comfort in a lifetime of happy memories, in the love of family and dear ones, in your strong faith, and in the knowledge that she is free from all the burdens, limitations, frailties and constraints of earthly life. One day you will all be together again. Until then, hold tight to her memory. In sincere sympathy and friendship.
