    Deb, Dwayne, Matt & family,
    Words can never describe how I feel right now & Im so very sorry for your loss. Im so greatful that I had Frank as my “uncle” & am so blessed & honored that he stood for my father that night, in my parents kitchen & played a huge part in my marriage. I dont think my dad would have wanted any other man, than his best buddy, by my side that night. I take comfort in knowing they are together & thru the tears, I manage to smile because I can just picture them. He was always there for me & loved Jas, “Mogan” & Madi like they were his own blood & to that Im thankful. Great man doesn’t even begin to describe Uncle Frank… He is so dearly missed & never will be forgotten… thank you for the love & all of the memories!
