    My condolences to you Aunt Marilyn for the passing of my dear Oncle Frank. I loved Frank and I know he cared about me and my family too. When I was a boy visits from Frank were always such an occasion that I looked forward to. He joked around with me, made me laugh, played with me and talked to me and I loved every moment. He used to give me these tennis trophies that I would display proudly in my room. When I grew up he was always a loving and wonderful uncle. I will miss him and I feel quite simply that my life has been made better because he was a part of it. Thank you Frank and may you rest in peace in heaven.

    I appreciate the time we got to spend with Grandpa Frank and the great role model he was. Fond memories of all kinds of outdoor activities together but mostly tennis, swimming, biking & tinkering in the shed – he may have seemed frugal but was ahead of his time in being environmentally friendly and it wasn’t hard to see Frank had everything a man could ask for with the true wealth of happiness and a live full of adventure & love. You will be missed deeply!
