My heart goes out to you, Loretta and to my cousins, in this time of our loss of Uncle Mel. I remember uncle Mel as a very gentle person. I look back at the good memories with the Frey family. Childhood memories include the infamous family picture with Grandma Frey and her grandchildren. Then the pictures from the family reunions inspired by my aunts. I will keep your family in my prayers and make a donation to the St. Vincent de Paul Society in his memory. Our Grandpa Begley on mom’s side was also very devoted to helping others thru this organization. God bless! Rita (Frey) Bisping, Herb Bisping and family.
