Good Bye Uncle Frank. I'm sure Aunt Kathleen is waiting for you. I was always so proud to tell people I had an uncle that flew 747's and I remember you studying to take that test. I hope you had your fancy watch on that I always loved. Tell Aunt Kathleen we miss her and make sure you both watch over all of us in PA especially on Memorial Day weekend. You both will be missed.
