Uncle Frank, never had the honor of meeting you. You passed before I was born. Your brother, Larry, my dad loved and missed you so. He is gone now and you are together once again. In your honor my family and grandchildren will be visiting the Fallen Officer Memorial in D.C. Thank you for service and all that protect us today.
