Pat and Kate,
We are deeply saddened by the loss of your husband and father. Frank and I have fond memories of the laughs we had with our visits to Durham. Also, we enjoyed our relationship with each other’s company in the suburbs of Chicago, IL. When you lived in the South Suburbs of Chicago before moving to Durham to be closer to Kate, we had many fun times. You understand my heart belongs in the South Suburbs.
God rest his soul.
Love, Helen and Frank LoBosco
