Rest in paradise uncle Frank. I will always remember the fun times in Illinois! Whether we were playing board games in the kitchen, or on the pontoon boat enjoying the day, you sure knew how to be the life of the party! Always the biggest smile in the room, and a kind and loving man. I will miss you, but I am glad to have had you in my life. I love you!
