I am sorry that I will be out of town tomorrow and miss Frank’s services but I would like to express my deepest condolences on your loss. I knew Frank since the late 1970's and can honestly say that I enjoyed every minute I ever spent with him. He was a man of humility and unshakable integrity and I think I am a better person for having known him.
