Sincere condolences go out to the Gonzalez family for your sad loss. May GOD be with the family as you mourn the loss of Frank. Revelation 21:4 states "He will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”

My condolences to Leticia, Frankie and their Families and to Mr. and Mrs. Guadalupe Gonzalez and Family. I’m really going to miss Uncle Frank. I really enjoyed when me and Mr. G. would visit with him. He would entertain us with playing guitar and singing all of their favorite songs. He and Mr. G. knew a bunch of the oldies hits of way back when. He would make us laugh when he finished singing a song and we would say Ortra!, Ortra!, ( Another one!, Another one! ). And he would respond with Ortra!, Hasta Que Te La Preindas! ( Another one, until you’ve learned it! ) It was funny cos he was making fun of himself. Because he would only play and sing the beginning of a song or just half way. Then he would start on another one. Ha! Also he would always have hot coffee and pan de dulce waiting for us. I guess he knew us musicians don’t perform on an empty stomach. : ) I know we’re going to miss Uncle Frank. I wish there would have been more time to hang and jam with him. I know I’m going to miss his talent, his hospitality and his kind and giving of himself nature. But mostly I’m going to miss his friendship. Rest In Peace Uncle Frank. Thank you for those special times you spent with us. Your entertaining the Angels now.
