I have a lot of great and fun memories of living in Greeley across the street from The Glavinick family. There was not many days or weekends where I was not hanging out with the family. You all were truly my second family in Colorado. As I got older and moved away from Colorado, I lost contact with most of you however I have never forgotten any of you.
Many "Thanks" to Jackie and Frank for always being there for my brother Joe while he remained living in Colorado. You treated him like your son. I was very appreciated of the kind things you did for him.
Franklin, I will never forgot your smile and especially your laugh. Rest in peace.

I have so many great memories of Franklin. I will always remember Franklin for his very distinct laugh, and smile. He had this look when he wanted something or for me to join him on one of his daily excursions. Those excursions meant going to a yard sale, Walmart or Kmart, for something he needed.
I will never forget Franklin & Jackie taking care of me during my rough college years. I would get a call from Uncle Franklin wondering if I was coming over for lunch or dinner that day? He would say "what else are you going to do"? So come on over! Franklin was so caring, and always looked out for me in so many ways. He always checked up on me daily, monthly, yearly.
If it wasn't for Franklin I would have never discovered Leadville, Colorado and the mountains for what they are to me today. Of course with Leadville came the Glavinick family up there. Mona, Sheila, and Johnny. The best memory I have of Franklin, and Leadville was the time we took up roofing tiles for Vidi's cabin near Halfmoon. I had the truck, and extra hands and Frank needed to get those tiles up to Leadville. So we loaded up that Isuzu pickup, and off we went crawling up the hills to Leadville. We finally pulled into town and got pulled over by the Leadville PD. Franklin was so upset that they just pulled us over to see what we were doing, and why? He told the cop "don't you know who I am"? Of course the police noted how dark my windows were tinted, and just sent us on our way. We laughed, and laughed as Franklin said " I sure told him".
Finally, as I said Franklin always was checking up on me. I was looking for a phone number the other day in an old phone to inform someone of Franklin's passing, and when I turned on the phone the voice mail screen was up. On the screen was an unheard voice mail from 11/17. That voice mail was Franklin checking up on me because he hadn't heard from me. Apparently he still is checking up on me.
