Uncle Frank, my favorite uncle and he always called me his favorite niece was a good, kind and loving man. I grew up with him. He taught me to drive his little VW convertible when he got home from Germany. He was in the army for two years. I don't remember him ever saying a bad word about anyone. He loved his wife and family dearly. I'll miss his early morning telephone calls even the ones that came in at 3 and 4 am PST. He always forgot about the time change and I would scold him but he always had a good laugh and an apology and promise to do better next time. I love you Uncle Frank and will miss you terribly. Rest in Peace dear Uncle. Heaven has added another angel and you are with your family.
