As his niece, I couldn't have asked for a better uncle. His unconditional love both as a child and, then, an adult as my family grew is cherished and will be greatly missed. Condolences to all that had the good fortune to have a relationship with Frank, especially his family. Love, Pam, Todd and Romey
