My brother Frank was brilliant, quick, confident, handsome, intense, and he was a terrible tease! He loved to laugh and he knew how to make others laugh until it hurt. He loved his music and he was a great dancer. I understood him. I loved him. May he rest in the peace of God, triumphant over all through grace! My sincerest condolences to his wife and children, and to all who mourn his passing. Until we all meet again!
