It is so hard to believe that Frank is now singing in the Lord’s choir. Being several years younger than Frank, I always thought that he was bigger than life and the strongest person ever. Our families were best of friends and we spent many, many hours together. Several years ago, Frank referred to my sister and I as his little sisters. I always felt like part of the Pruett family and they were part of my family. Rest In Peace my dear brother. You are now reunited with Connie, your momma and daddy, my momma and daddy, Uncle Jim, Aunt Ruby, Mary Jane and the list goes on and on. Until we meet again!
