I remember so well those early years when our families lived just a hill away from each other. I remember all the teasing Frank gave me. I remember babysitting Vance, Terry, and Missy. I remember always thinking how Frank looked like Elvis! And now I know that he and mom and others are having a blast! Much love to family left behind. -Beverly (Hills) Chapman
