Mike and Family, your Dad was a wonderful person and we always enjoyed visiting with him on return visits to Pleasanton. The Good Lord will take care of him as he now joins your mom in everlasting peace.

Frank was a wonderful man. I got the chance to know him and work with him as co-worker at Hometown GMAC. He would often bring the ladies in the offices a rose and put in on our desks to brighten our day.

When Measure PP and the NO on D campaigns and elections were in full swing, he would stop by my office almost every day to learn the latest updates. I very proud to receive a donation to my campaign from Frank before he passed. Mike, thank you for all of the time you spent caring for him and shuttling your dad around town over the past few years. You are both very special people.

Mike & Family, your dad was really someone special, and it was my pleasure to know him!
