Frank and I had been friends for well over 20 years . I could not have asked for a better friend . If I needed something and he could help he would without question . We helped each other through a lot of bad times , and were also there for one another and celebrated the good ones as well .If I needed someone to talk to he was always there with a ear to listen and sound advice to give . We worked together at 2 different places , he was a hard worker . I can't even begin to tell you how much fun we have had over the years just spending time together cutting up and acting silly . We listened to all those old country songs sitting in his car at lunch and on our breaks every day . He called me kid and I called him Ole Man . I loved him and he loved me . I will forever cherish our friendship ! Frank was probably the first person that I told any news in my life to , and he would do the same with me . We kept each other's secrets. I will miss the hell out of him . My heart is forever broken , but when I think of him I will always smile . Lisa , Joan and the rest of the family you are in my thoughts and prayers . Wish I were there to give you a hug . I'm so glad I got to spend a day with him before he went to Chicago. I knew it would be the last time I got to see him and I cried all the way back home . I got to hug his neck and tell him I loved him ., and thanked him for always being my friend .I'm grateful for that . Fly High Frankie Joe , til I see ya again !
