Sally, I am so saddened by Dr. Frank's passing. He has been in my life since I was 18....he drove the Renaissance bus on my first trips and we were buddies from that day on. I had no idea he was so ill. The two of you were blessed to have each other...Seems like just yesterday he was buying you a strawberry belt and then we picked out your wedding dress. Sigh... Please know you are in my thought and prayers. Much love, Lisa

Frank was a true and faithful friend of more than 40 years and I will really miss him. He was a great teacher and human being and never had an enemy. This man made a difference in so many lives and that is the best that any of us can hope to accomplish with our lives.
