I wanted to express that Frank was a extremly nice man who I have had great pleasure knowing him. If the world had more people like him the world would be a much better place to live. The most important thing to me is that God created such a fine example of what he would want us to be like. He always was a pleasure to be around and he will surely be missed. I hope one day that I could be hopefully thought of in such a good way. My prayers is with the family and that God will give them comfort in there time of need. I also wanted to thanks the family also for you kindness to me also. Once again it was a pleasure to know Frank.
