Although he was a man of few words, Grandpa Frankie was a man of great legacy. I always remember the calming and supportive presence he had, and how he always seemed to have a grandchild or great-grandchild nestled perfectly in his arms while they both slept peacefully.
He had such a wealth of knowledge; it seemed he always knew the answer to everything. He was so quick and so sharp that he could sway audiences. I remember the calm and commanding presence he had over a room. Playing games with him he would say "now hold on just a minute," and the crowd of noisy children would fall silent, during which time he would delve into a long and perfectly logical reason as to why he was right, often winning the favor of everyone around.
As fond as these memories are, and as many of them as I have, I think the best word I can use to describe how I will remember him, and the word that was most accurately used at his beautiful ceremony, is legacy. I see his legacy in his heart and in his spirit, both of which I see every day in those he left behind.
His heart was so big; it is surprising it fit in his chest. He travelled to all corners of the world to visit and support children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Anything you needed he would give selflessly and without question, from a hug to a treat to a life lesson.
His spirit was one of faith, determination, independence, and can-do. There was nothing he couldn't do, or if there was, he learned how to. He led by example, not by words, because words weren't necessary. His example was naturally passed on to his children, my father being one of them, and that was passed on to me. His heart and spirit are so large and so strong that the passing of them from generation to generation is smooth and seamless. The lessons and skills that I am most grateful to have learned from my father are those same ones that he learned from his father. Grandpa Frankie is one of those men who transcends time; whose ideals, lessons, and spirit will be passed from generation to generation. He lives on in my father, and in me, and in the many generations to come.
We will always feel your love.
