    I know I don’t have to tell you of all people, how I felt about both Wanna Ruth AND Frank. They were my second set of Parents – all my life – the entire time I was growing up, even after I had Mike & Matt. Oh the funny & WONDERFUL stories I could tell, ESPECIALLY about Frank & Daddy. Sadly, i did not find out about her death until today, just now, matter of fact – Well after the funeral was over… For that I am soooo sorry Dennis, but I will be in touch shortly big bro..,
    After Mother & Daddy having been killed, I WELL know how you feel & what you have ahead of you. Don’t hesitate to call me if you ever need ANYTHING Dennis, 24/7, I’ll be here. I’ll msg you my Cell on FB.
    All my love,
