I met Frank while I was caring for his wife. He was always so positive and so caring and it was very clear, that he loved his wife dearly. He seemed to know everyone and never had a bad thing to say about anyone. I enjoyed hearing his stories and getting to know him and his family. Randy, I am sorry for your loss but take comfort in knowing that he is with your Mother and Snickers again. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to know this wonderful man and his family!!
