Sorry to hear of your families loss . You're all in our thoughts and prayers .
Susan and Jack Reneau
From on top of Blue Mountain outside Missoula, Montana, greetings and love from Jack and Susan Reneau (Mary Tomon's oldest son and oldest daughter-in-law). We are so sorry to hear of Frank's passing but glad that he is in a better place free of pain and illness. We know such a nice guy is enjoying Heaven. We are sorry not to be able to be at the funeral. Love to everyone in the family. He was charming to talk to at family reunions.
It was with real sadness that Susan and I heard of Frank's passing. Unfortunately, we don't get to Pennsylvania often enough, but I am especially glad that I visited with Frank the last time I was there. I am also especially glad that I spent a half hour with him on the phone this past Memorial Day. Susan's and my thoughts and prayers are with Frank's entire family, especially Elaine, Rae, and Sheila. May wonderful and happy memories help to take away the sad moments that you all feel, especially at this time. Jack & Susan Reneau, Missoula, Montana

I am so very sorry to learn of the loss of your father. We understand death for the first time when God puts his hands on one whom we we love. We must always have old memories and young hopes. My thoughts and prayers remain with you and your family.
