Hello, I believe this was my Uncle Frank. His wife Jean was my Dad's sister. I had lost touch with my Dad's side of the family many years ago after his death in 1981. I am sadded by your loss but hope Uncle Frank and Aunt Jean had a good life. I remember Aunt Jean was quite the baker. And, I think my sister Angela must have been named after Aunt Jean (Angeline). I myself was named after Sister Rose Marie (Jean's sister) when she still went by Sister Clarissa. Please feel free to contact me if you wish. Sincere regards, Clarissa
