I was so sad hear that Frank had died. I talked with him a few months ago and he sounded so good. I have very fond memories of my childhood. Dad, Ike and Frank were all very good friends, Ike's carport was a very popular place.
Nola, my mom wanted me to tell you she is thinking and praying for you as well as your family. Tod, your Madrina sends her sympathy and prayers and her love.
God Bless you all..
