I grew up knowing him. He was friends with my father, who worked with him in the AC Fire Department. I also went to school with his daughter, Charlotte. He was also an author. I enjoyed readng "A Nest of Rebel Pirates" about the British attack on Chestnut Neck (now Port Republic). He was a great man and will be remembered.

So many words come to mind, though none of them seem like enough. The world was such a better place while this man was in it. The last time I talked to you Uncle Franklin, I told you that you were always one of my heroes. You acted so surprised, giggled & thanked me. NO! Thank you! The Kemps & the McGrews didn't need blood to be family: they just were. June, oh June (we started it all), Aunt Stella, Char & Waynie: we have to take comfort in our memories & feel better that he's...
