Silvia Frank's Obituary

Silvia Frank was a client of mine for her two last babies. She was murdered by her estranged husband, reportedly in front of one of the children. You can read my initial response to the tragedy here. And, an aside since this is a birth blog, all five of her girls were born at home. Silvia was radiant in labor! I miss her so, so very much.

From the Valley Chronicle, Dec. 16, 2010

Sylvia Leticia Frank, 37, of San Jacinto, died Nov. 30, 2010, at Hemet Valley Medical Center.
