Dear Frankie:   

I wish I could have told you this 65 years ago.   Remember when Uncle Eddie asked  you and your brother why you never smiled and you told him that we had nothing to smile about?  Well,  you should have been smiling all the time, because everything was going to  work out almost perfectly in your life.

You will have a great  profession that you  desired ,  you will marry the perfect girl,who will turn out to be very fertile and a great mother to your six perfect children.  Some rough water to go through after your dad gets sick, but you will have the support of your extended family to guide you through it all.   Work hard, but do not worry because it’s going to be great!!!  

Big Frankie
