Conrad and I will miss Him so much when we come to NJ and go see Aunt Flossie. I am so glad he was such a praying man! His family knew they were being prayer for everyday. He love his boys so much! See you in Heaven Uncle Frank! . He wanted to know all about our 3 kids. Conrad and I loved to go visit. We always said as we got in our car, ? those two really live each other"

"It's funny anytime I was at the house Uncle Frank would ask me how I was doing and he really meant it, but next would come the other question. So How is Your Car? He always cared and was concerned about me I will miss him dearly! I love you Uncle Frank "
