Karen my thoughts and prayers are with you and the family. I was just looking through the scrapbook that I kept of the Sow Bowl. Frank was a generous man and a great coach and it is awesome to see the Youth Football Program that Frank started so many years ago is still going strong. It was his legacy. Safe journeys Frank on your next adventure.

Karen, I am so sorry to hear about Frank's illness and death. He will always be "Frankie" to me, though I had a long (grown-up) conversation with him when looking for classmates for our reunion. He was quite a guy, and I'm sorry not to have become better re-acquainted and sorry too not to have met you as a grown-up after all these years. I'd still like to visit some of his building projects.
I hope you are coping and surrounded by friends.
