NOTE FROM FRANKIE’S Family
I wanted to thank you for the very professional Press Release created for us. I went through my SPAM and finally found the document you sent me on Thursday and Friday last week. I am extremely grateful that CUE is always there for me and families who are in similar circumstances. I will continue to try and find ways to give back . As so many obstacles confront us we become used to being let down or people losing interest in our plight and loss. I have never felt that from CUE. You can’t buy that kind of support. Your support restores my faith in human beings every single time I reach out to this organization. Thank You again.
