It has always been a blessing to have Frank(as we've always called him)as part of our family. He has always been thoughtful, encouraging, interested and supportive of all of us. I am thankful to have known him and for all the memories we have shared, especially for the old memories of my parents he shared with me that I would have never known. I love him and will remember him well. God's best to his sons and their families. He dearly loved and was very proud of you.
