Oh Gina..........I just saw this in today's paper. My heart is broke for you and the kids. My husband died in November. I know what you are going through. If I can do anything at all for you I am here.

Daddy and Frankie worked together for years. I will always remember Frankie smiling and joking around. I remember one time my grandmother and I had walked somewhere and Frankie spotted us and gave us a ride. We really appreciated that.

There are so many great and funny memories I have with my dad. He gave me the best childhood growing up. So every memory I have is a great memory. He was the best father and would do just about anything for his girls. He taught me life and I was still learning. My dad was a very patient and kind man he didn’t deserve what happened to him. I will forever keep our memories and forever wish you were still here. Life will not be the same without “the doorman”

I weep for his family and his many many friends. What a sweet, fun, loving man Frankie was. In all the years we knew each other I never saw anything but a smile on his face and a warm, personal greeting when I ever ran into him anywhere. Sending all my love to all his family. Your loss is like none other. He will be sincerely missed by all who knew him.🥀💔

Frankie The Door Man

A family man, the Door Man and an incredible friend,
It’s so unfair that his time came to an abrupt end.
His goal in life was to take care of all,
Never did he let the ones he loved take a fall.
He loves his girls.
He always tried to give them the world.
He valued his friendships near and far.
And when it came to being a loyal friend, he set the bar.
His love for motorcycles and boats was like no other,
Giving him the chance to gain many brothers from another mother.
He would give anyone the shirt off his back.
And because of that, he made a huge impact.
To know him was to love him.
He had the heart of a perfect gem.
He wouldn’t want us to to say goodbye,
He wouldn’t want us to continue to cry.
He would want us say, See ya later.”
And continue our lives making the world greater.
Frank, will never be forgotten and always loved,
And we will see him again because of our faith in God above.
A tribute from a dear friend, Norris Gholston
