Message: May 3, 2004 - I am Frank's youngest daughter Helen Burton,
and I just had a daughter
about 1.5 years ago (Suzanne Emily Dupras). This is now Frank's 5th
grandchild. Would you mind amending the last line of the biography to
read: To date they have five grandchildren.Thank you so much,

Hello Mr Riley
I am Frank Burton's daughter. Sadly, I have to tell you that my Dad passed away on August 10, 2011.
He was diagnosed with stomach cancer in July and we thought we would have him with us for a few more months, but early in August his heart gave out. He would have been 95 on Aug 21st. As you can imagine, it was quite a blow and so very unexpected. He had been in good health up until the diagnosis.
I have the Xmas card from the Turners showing the crew and the ship. I shall always keep it.
Hope you are doing well - I think my Dad was one of the oldest sailors on the ship so he lived a very long life.
