I'm going to miss my Godfather so much. There is so many memories to remember. Most of all i remember the voice of reason and the strength he showed when he needed to the love he offered and the correction he used to guide to help guide me to the woman I am today. Thank you for teaching me to be the loving and strong when I need to be. I love you Uncle Frank. I will miss you so much.
