  • Hi Pop. It's been a very long time & much water has flowed under the bridge. Even at 57 yo, I still remember you & Nan with much love & affection. We are all proud of your military service in WWI. We are also proud of the sacrifices you & Nan made for your family after Eddie's unexpected death in 1927. Life was not easy, during that time. Until we meet up again. With love & respect, Grant (grandson) & Catherine, Barry (great-grandson), Brittany, & Elisa (great-great-granddaughter), Anna-Maree (great-granddaughter), Anthony, & Lilly (great-great-granddaughter).
  • Dear Frank, my name is Amanda and my husband is Paul, and you are his grandfather. We often think of you and have a nice photo of you in our home. We have told Charlotte and Leo (your great grandchildren) about you and they are very proud to hear about what you did for our country, and for them. One day we will meet you and will thank you in person.

We now live in Avondale close to where you rest. It's a shame we never met, but I hope we'll have the opportunity one day. Love, Paul (grandson), Charlotte (great-grand daughter), and Leo (great-grand son)
