My love and Prayers go out to Cindy, Timmy, Rachel and their families as they say goodbye to their father. Frank, never at a loss for words!! Always happy to share stories of his childhood, military days and how he loved kitties, puppies and the great out doors. I have so many memories of Frank.. he made me laugh to tears on more than one occasion!! What a strong sweet man he was!! Always happy to see you and never turned down a hug or a plate of good food! I will miss your gift to gab and your big bright smile. You were easy to love and I count it a blessing to have known you in this life. Fly high Frank. Gone but never forgotten as I will carry my memories of you in my heart always. It was a pleasure knowing you.
