So so sorry to hear of Frank's passing. I loved him.

I taught with Frank at Maple School for 25 years. Shared so many laughs and good times. In the early years, I was a floating teacher and had to share his room for a period each day. While he was trying to be as accommodating as possible, there were definitely places in his room that I should not go near. You know how those math teachers can be. Tried to act tough but really squishy.
