Dear Chloe, Thank you so much for coming on here and giving us a point of contact to send our well wishes and sincere condolences? Is there any cause or non-profit that Frank loved or was passionate about to which we can set up a memorial for him? You have our attention here, and I think I can say how deeply sorry we all are for his loss, for you and your family's loss.
