  1. I never met Frank but would like to salute and thank him for raising an incredible leader I get to learn from every day. I am very proud to work with Christine and I know she is leading the way for many due to Mr. Shaughnessy’s guidance.

  2. I will miss the visits when you came to Michigan…. loved seeing my Godfather and my Dad- Bud having and sharing life’s memories.
    Sending the family love and prayers and God’s peace. Holly (Kirsten) Alcock
