I will miss Frankie so much, he and Jake would come into the cafeteria almost every morning and Tammy and I would fix them fried homemade bread or some other goodie. He kept the lawn mowed and trash picked-up along the highway in front of the school. I know he is in a much better place. I hope he and my sister Sissie Charbula are setting around have a great time talking old days. My thoughts and prayers are with the family. He will be missed by all who knew him.. God Bless
