Not sure what to say?

Dr. Schnugg was such a livwly, incredible man, and dad! I thought our family was large, 6 kids. His reflection on the community and how his children were to the community of Lamorimda was everlasting and indescribable! Sending love to the family and his immediate family, as they attended the same school as me and my siblings. Much love and admiration to this one of a kind healer and generally a) around neat man!

Oh, my dear Mary,

We recently heard from Jean Kane Steichen's daughter, Mary, that she had come upon Franks's obituary. She is our genealogist and is constantly finding new information. How deeply sorry to hear the news. I remember well being at your wedding in Rochester and hearing from Severne and Mort of the happenings of your family at our get togethers down here in L.A. How proud you must be of all the children. You and Frank were blessed. Cherish the many happy...

Dear Peggy, Ann, Jane and families, What a tremendous legacy your father left you all. I remember my first "introduction" to your dad (and family) in the late 1960s on a trip to Disneyland which out families won. Growing up, my parents often talked about "the amazing doctor from Orinda with all the kids" with awe, respect, and wonder. You're lucky you have each other and share so many memories. I know he will be deeply missed.
Love, Lynette Ley
