Just that, like Larry, I miss him and think of him every day. Frank, I often pray that you have forgiven me for the pain I caused you. I am happy you found happiness with Betty, and grandkids too. You know they and so many others miss you daily. We all are grateful for what you gave us. But especially, know you are still and always will be loved.

Betty, I did not know. I didn't find out until yesterday...on his birthday. Even though I hadn't seen Frank in many years, I loved him! He was such a hero in my eyes. Sending so much love to you...please forgive me for being so late.

Dearest Betty, I am so saddened to hear about Frank. You know you two have meant so much to me over the years - through family illnesses and deaths, and I remember when you came over and gave me a shot when I was deathly sick with the flu. There was never a time that you two didn't show up at the time of my greatest need, and just know my love and prayers are with you and your precious family at this time. I remember your's and Frank's visits when I was in Tampa - those were some fun times!! The love you and Frank shared will live in your heart forever, I would love to see those precious grandchildren. Give my love to Sam and Casey. We need to have a long get together when you're up to it. Love and hugs, my sweet friend.

I am very sad to learn of Frank's passing. He was a big brother and dear friend to me in the 80's. His home was always open to anyone that needed healing, friendship and a place to lay one's head. I will always hold that time in my life and the part Frank played very near and dear.
