Ann, I’m so sorry for your loss. Frank was a great guy and I have some wonderful memories of him from when we went to the Poconos with you guys to riding my Dads motorcycles to the Harley plant one weekend to you guys dancing at my wedding. Here is a picture that I found on the day Frank, me and my Dad rode the motorcycles to the Harley factory. Frank was sitting on a Boss Hoss.
