    As neighbors of Frank and Anna, we have observed them as a family. As Anna became weaker, Frank, Diane and Vasilia provided continual care for Anna. She was lovingly cared for by the family. During this time there were many other family members visiting Anna and sharing family stories. It was impressive to see all their love and devotion.
