    Hope, I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of your dad. I have a great memory of meeting your parents and sharing a meal in Champaign. I hope all your wonderful memories of your dad will help you get through this awful time.

    Dear Carol and Hope, was so sorry to hear of Frank's passing. I remember being at their wedding, and then later to hear of the announcement of Hope. God only takes the good ones, he needed another angel. May he rest in peace and you both find comfort knowing he was loved and admired by many.

    My sympathy to Frank's family. I worked with this gentleman from 1977 until his retirement. He was loved by all in New Lenox. Just a great guy!
