Ow you will be missed Frank. There was never anyone else like you. You were a very special person. A one of a kind. Memories have been coming back to me all day since I heard of your passing. One when Sherry and I were leaving the house and we did not have our pants tucked in correctly and there was snow on the ground. I still tuck my pants legs in just like you showed me to this day. Also you were never allowed to leave the house without nums and hugs. Love and hugs to all the family. Memories are so precious. Love to each and every one of you. Love Danelle
