“To Bernice, Denise and the Parks family - my thoughts are with you. Frank was such a lovely, kind man with a huge heart. I will always remember the kindness extended to me in making me feel so welcome as part of the family. It was such a pleasure and privilege to have spent time with him, and to call him "dad". I will miss him, (his jokes), and his gentleness, greatly. Your Aussie daughter, Lyn”
