Frank was my uncle (my father Bo's brother). I didn't know him very well because I live in California. I do remember him when I was a child at least 55 years ago. Even though I live so far away, he had a special place in my heart. I will never forget Uncle Frank. My heart goes out to the family for having to deal with him being sick from COVID 19. I can't imagine what you went through. I get comfort knowing that he is with his father, mother, siblings and children again. There are so many relatives that I never met. I am praying for all the relatives and friends he left behind.

Got to spend the most time with Umcle Frank when I was still in middle school and he would come over and watch NASCAR with me and Grandpa.
