I remember your dad (and mom) with such fondness and love. He was such a wonderful man! After all of these years, I still remember the two of us being little tykes playing in the family room and your dad playing with us. Hugs and love to you, my dear friend ...

I love how Frank and his late wife Pat raised their lovely daughter, Kathy. Frank could always make me laugh without knowing how funny he could be.

Our condolences to your family. Frank was a year behind us in school. He grew up right south of our Dimmich farm. He and I rode the bus together all through school. I always remember David and Frank having Shetland ponies as they grew up. They were a nice family and good neighbors.
