    My mom has many pictures of her siblings as they were young adults. Uncle Frank looked like he could of been a movie star in his uniform, We spent many summers in Texas when my grandparents were living. Uncle Frank was a jokester and was always laughing and smiling. The last time I visited w/my mom, he took us to a delicious Mexican restaurant and we talked and laughed. He was a wonderful man and called often to check on my mother. I dread having to give her this news, It will break her heart. God rest you, Uncle Frank. May perpetual light shine upon you and grant you peace.

    We are heartbroken and will miss Frank so much at our Parkinson Support Group meetings. He always made us laugh when he picked on Wanda, which he loved to do. Rest In Peace, sweet man! So sorry for your loss, dear Myrtis!
