Thanks Frank. You did your best to make me understand 12 simple steps. I quit fighting myself and though it's a constant struggle I know I can win in the end. See you at the biggest meeting.

Frank was great inspiration to me and to many in AA. He was a "Man's man" and he could be a tough hombre. But he was tough and honest about his failings and character defects. It made easier to look at mine. He will be missed.

Remembering good times on the job site with Frank, he was always a pleasure to be with, definitely a joy to work with, as he made the day go by fast and fun for me with his quick witted thoughts.... he’ll be truly missed!
