    So sorry for the loss of Frank. I always enjoyed seeing him from way back when we lived on the farm.

    Crazy timing for 2 such caring, generous men. Neither one knew a stranger. I will never forget Hainey cooking us dinner by kerosene lantern shortly after moving here, some 30+ years ago, during the many power shortages. Frank will be missed.
