West Point, 1945

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by Edward F Kane on November 30, 2020:

Just went on internet out of curiosity for family members and discovered my first cousin Frank passed in October. His father and mine were brothers. I did not see him very often but when I did it was obvious that first and foremost was that he was a true gentleman in every sense. I remember his father writing to me during WW2. I was so proud of him. My grandfather was a trial lawyer in Norristown Pa. died before age 42. Never knew him. My father was a trial lawyer in Norristown pa and died when I was 3 months old. I shall be 86 next st Patrick day. I too was a trial lawyer in the same town. Loved every minute being in a courtroom now retired Uncle Frank and family great members of our military. May Frank jr Rest In Peace. I hope he says a prayer for me once in awhile. Not sure he needs any prayers but I will include him just in case
