    Dearest Frannie So sorry to hear of Harry's passing. Was looking for you both and unfortunately found Harry's obituary. Lost mine in 2010 The video was a beautiful tribute to the wonderful.life you had together. So blessed. It's Carol nee Dorsey from Hurley St. You look the same as when I first met you! My best regards and sincerest sympathy! He was one of a kind! Awesome man. You both matched so beautifully! Carol Paupst (On Facebook, as apparently most of the World, friend me, would love to talk)

    May you see God's light on the path ahead When the road you walk is dark. May you always hear, Even in your hour of sorrow, The gentle singing of the lark. When times are hard may hardness Never turn your heart to stone, May you always remember When the shadows fall- You do not walk alone. love to all of you from all of us...

    Dear Fran,

    Meeting you and Harry in Ireland was one of the highlights of the trip. You were two of the sweetest people I've ever met, and Harry shared his connection to my hometown of Havertown, PA. Everywhere we went, and every drink we had we toasted to Harry's life. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your entire family at this difficult time. From one meeting I could tell that you have lost a truly precious man in all of your lives.
