Frank was my RTO but he was also my friend and buddy. I do not use that term lightly as we were close. I have over the years tried to imagine what our friendship would have grown into. You do not meet very many people in your life that you really connect with and Frank and I did. God, I miss what could have been for us both. If there was any way this message could only get to him. Frank, I miss you.
