The family’s expressions of love to Frank:
“My True Love and one of a kind. I am going to miss you Baby.”
“My Teacher, My Idol, My Hero, The strongest man I ever knew with endless wisdom and knowledge with a heart of chocolate that would melt in the presence of his grand babies.”
“Dad’s love was rarely spoken and he didn’t always show it, but some how or some way he made sure you would always know it.”
“My father was a man of few words. Some of them that stand out the most are, ‘I have forgotten more than you’ll ever know!’ He may have taught me less than he’s forgotten, but it was still more than most will ever know!”
“We love you and will miss you Pa.”
