April, Brock, Shane and family, so very sorry for your loss. The loss of a parent is very hard. Semper Fi Frank have really missed our conversations.

We were fortunate to spend so much time with Uncle Frank during the last few years that he spent at the care center, along with Dad. You would rarely walk in that he wasn’t sitting out in the living room with a big smile and his cronies surrounding him. We always joked that he was the mayor of the care center. Mom always had a few bottles of root beer in her car for him that he appreciated so much. I am sorry that I won’t be in Ohio with all of you to celebrate his life but will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. He was definitely one of a kind and will be sorely missed.
