Bryan, My sympathies to you and your family on the passing of Frank. I’m sorry, Bryan. I enjoyed visiting with him at the Evanston Gun Club. He was a curious young man who was full of questions, had an old soul and a great eye for fun and adventure. I’m sure the good Lord will have his arms fully open with a wide smile when he sees Frank. May your grief be brief and your memories give you a warm smile going forward. Dick Doermer
