Frank was a special friend of mine. My brother Fred Williams and my Dog Cody we’re blessed to visit him every week with The Red Cross for 12 years . His smile would light up the Room. He always shared a Funny story with us. If we couldn’t find him we would see him outside walking around and helping keeping the grounds up. He would pick Roses and give to the ladies which would always make them smile. He always cared about others. We also got to spend time with his wife before she passed away he truly loved her and they are finally together with their son 😢
