Uncle Frankie was like a 2nd dad to me! I would spend summer vacations with he and Aunt Dia Ann. He treated and loved me like a son and I will always cherish those memories. I would’ve loved to have gone fishing one more time. Love and miss you Uncle Frankie. We’ll all be along one day. You, Mom and Bigmama wait for us at the gate!

I met Frankie when he was in the Navy in Millington, TN in 1969. My husband and I became quick friends with Frankie and Diane. We have kept in touch all these 51 years. I'm so sorry for all the family and friends.
