So sorry hearing that Frank had passed away. I was his Bingo pal at Kings Ridge where he always saved me a seat until the last year when I couldn't always make it there. I will always have fond memories of him and he spoke of his family quite often. I will miss him. He would call me if he hadn't seen me at Bingo for awhile to make sure that I was OK. Frank was one of the few who still remembered my Mom and Dad when he was first in Kings Ridge. He was a wonderful person and very kind. I will miss him and keep the family in my prayers for the loss of a great Dad. I know what it is like.
