In loving memory of my Uncle Frank, a very fine and good man. Frank Jr. was a child of the Great Depression, he was a soldier, and a first rate family man. Frank also was a Renaissance Man, whose mind embraced science, nature, and was gifted with a great historical perspective that much exceeded his own 90 years. I hope that I have learned a few things from him. Frank is loved and will be very missed always.

I'm so sorry I never had a chance to know your Dad. He sounds like he was a really special person.

I so enjoyed the times your Dad allowed me to share in fun activities such sailing at Lake Worth, digging Indian relics at Belton, and the rafting trip on the Rio Grande. He was a great guy, very sharing of his life and once of his Morris Minor car when he let me drive it. He will be in my memory always. Love, Judi
