Today, I will be thinking of Frank and remembering over 40 years of friendship going back to the 1970s. There are so many memories of hiking the superstition mountains with Frank and friends, going to the lake, hanging out at the old church turned into Frank’s drum studio, watching the original Saturday Night Liv on TV, crazy times in L.A., and the time Frank helped me when I was in a bad car accident. Frank showed up at the scene to help me. There are so many memories of friendship throughout the years. A friend is someone you may not see for years and when you do, its like you pick up exactly where you left off. Which is true the last timeI saw Frank. We met him and Jessica in Niagara Falls. We had such a good time. We walked everywhere around the Falls. Frank told us stories of the Seneca and all about the history of Niagara Falls. We had our own tour guide. It was awesome! I even had a beer with Frank for old times’ sake. I never thought that would be the last time I would ever see my friend. We think there will always be another time. Today we remember a good person, who was a true friend, brother, uncle and partner. Today, I think of Frank’s family; Diane, Tere, Joe and his nieces and nephews and Jessica who became a new friend in Niagara Falls. Today I send healing thoughts and thoughts of comfort for all of you. We will miss you forever, Frank…
Uncle Frank was always kind, and always had a great snack to share! I always felt blessed to still be apart of his life as I grew up. I remember his drum set. The last time I saw Uncle Frank was at my wedding in 2017.
Thanks so much to those who have said kind words about my brother Frank. I miss him terribly and I will miss him for the rest of my life. He was such a good and honest brother. I love you Frank. Until I see you again, your brother Joe.
It’s been almost a year and I still miss Frank so much.
