It's hard to express just how much our uncle meant to me. Some of my earliest memories are of Frank pushing us on the swings on our grandma and grandpa's front porch. My sister and brothers and I loved those swings, and could stay on them for hours. I can't remember Frank ever saying no when we asked him to push us on those swings - he always made time for us. We moved to Illinois when my dad got a job here, so we got to see Frank lots when he was at Purdue. As a grad school student who must have been always low on funds (as most college students are), Frank still bought and brought us all Valentines. I was a gangly junior high school student who felt less than pretty, but Frank saw the beauty in all of u

us. He gave me a Valentine with a lovely girl on the front, and said it reminded him of me. It was and is one of my favorite Valentines and I still have it. Frank doubled the love for us when he married Carol. When I was desperately lonely at college, away from home for the first time, Frank and Carol were one of the only ones who came to visit, spending the day with me and lifting my spirits immeasurably. We had many wonderful times at family reunions, our little kids playing dress up together, our teenage kids sleeping in the famous "couch pit." The last time I saw Frank, God and Carol gave me a gift I can never repay. God gave me a body that got very motion sick after the ride on the train. Carol set me up in a recliner next to Frank's and waited on us hand and foot so he and I got to spend the whole day talking. It was a gift I will be thankful for as long as I live and beyond. I'll miss you, dearest uncle. I love you. Please watch over Carol and Kim and Abdul and Megan and Eddie.

Thank you from one of Frank's nieces. I so appreciate the thought of him singing in heaven - imagining that brings some comfort. He missed singing so much. Love, Andrea Swanson
