So hard to think you're gone. My brother & I shared many loving & fun times with Uncle Frank & Wimp and I'm so very thankful I was able to spend time with him last summer. He was a special man with the sweetest smile & so much love for me & my brother as my parents were the best of friends all the way into their 90's. We still have his beautiful creations on our walls. Love you & miss you Uncle Frank..xox
