Good bye and RIP Uncle Frank. Even though I haven't seen you in many years, I do remember how much you enjoyed some of the latest technology and computers, which I share some interest in too. I remember your tailor shop in Orangeville and I remember going to your house many times when I was a kid when Aunt Yopie was still alive. I even remember going to the trailer to visit you guys a few times too. You always seemed very high spirited and energetic.
