My condolence to Uncle Frank i got to call him as a small boy. He always brought laughter and fun to life with the small amount of time I got to share with him and his family. I always enjoyed working with him in the cement business and will always remember him sharing a ride in his 70's Ford Ranchero GT, buying me a laugh machine toy, getting to play with cap guns around his home and sitting down and eating a garden supper with family, (because Uncle Frank enjoyed a smile)!
