  1. I know it has been a while since he was able to take his walks, but i will miss having him go back and forth in front of our house (and offer to lend me his riding mower every time he saw me out pushing my push one.).

  2. Frank touched my heart in more ways than he will ever know – I never had a chance to tell him how much he meant to me. He was probably the hardest working person I’ve ever met – he set such a good example. He was also one of the most generous people willing to help anyone that wanted to help themselves. Heaven gained an angel who I’m sure will keep working and watching over the family and friends he left behind. He will be missed.

  3. My grandpa was an extraordinary person. He was always kind to people and willing to help them if needed. I remember staying at his house when I was young and having a lot of fun doing the simplest things with him. We’d collect seed pods from impatiens flowers to spread them around the flowerbeds, visit his hotel and get Chinese food next door, walk around the neighborhood block with the dog, have late night summer picnics at Stone Mountain Park, and so much more. I’ll really miss him, but I’m glad that he isn’t hurting anymore. Heaven gained a great soul.

  4. Dear Aunt Joanne, Greg & Family, Denise and Family,
    With deepest sympathy on the loss of my “American” uncle, your husband, father and grandfather. It is with good reason he was in the hotel business. He was Mr. Hospitality. One of my fondest memories of my trip as a teen to Chicago was Uncle Frank showing me his Chicago motel and all of us going to the Wrigley Building for lunch. It was a wonderful experience! It had been years since I last saw him, but I have always held him in a special place in my heart. Rest easily Uncle Frank!

  5. Frank was a friend to all. He has touched the lives of so many, including us! We miss the encounters while walking on our street — he would always greet us with a smile and chat for a little while. Now he is walking in heaven and greeting others there. Our sincere heartfelt sympathy to Joanne and the rest of the family.
