To the Editor:

The family of Francis Brought would like to thank the Regional Hospice of Western Connecticut and the many friends who gave us comfort and support during Frank's illness; and for your prayers, cards, visits and memoriam's after his passing.

We also appreciate the way his memory was honored at his memorial service.

A special thank you to New Milford Post 1672 and the Auxiliary Honor Guard, Patrick Maguire and his bag pipes, the state Vietnam Veterans of America, and those state VFW comrades and auxiliary sisters, many of who traveled long distances, who attended the celebration of Frank's life at St. Paul's Church.

God bless you all.

Pat Brought

New Milford
