I am going to miss Uncle Frank alot. All the times that we had at the family reunions I will always cherish and the memories when I went over to his house. He will be deeply missed. He was always there when you needed him. Wish I could be home for the service. My sympathy also goes to you Linda and Donn. Love you both.
