Our thoughts are with you. Some of our fondest memories are the family times on Asheville Bay and Frank and Lois were always part of the extended family. We miss them dearly.

We enjoyed being Frank and Lois's neighbor at Chautauqua Lake. They were always so happy and upbeat and kept such a cozy cottage. So happy they are together now. Our sympathies to your family.
