Deepest Sympathy with warm memories of a wonderful lady. Her recent Christmas note was beautifully written and joyful and warmed my heart. I will always carry with me memories of special times spent with Aunt Frances and Uncle Gordon. My thoughts and prayers are with her family. With much love, Ruth (Sheldon) Catalano

Frank, Fran, David, Linda ... & Aunt Frances So many fond memories, from so many years. Those trips to 'Binghamton' from Richfield Springs just to visit for a day or attend a wedding, when the "Family" could be joyous and a bit on the 'ruckous' (sp) side. Always a deck of cards when out of the group came that word - "PITCH" (I can hear it now!); and the shuffling began, not just the cards, but the seating at the table too ... always asked ... "cut throat or partners", the latter never a favorite. Who would be 'before' and after in the play? It was convenient then that we all lived "just down the road aways". I will visit you all this Spring (let me know if the internment is delayed till then). Regardless, I'm already looking forward seeing you all again. God Bless you all. My thoughts & prayers with you today and tomorrow. Bobby
