So sad to hear of Frank's passing. I remember well the fun times we had at Saratoga Race Course in the paddock. Cousin Linda and Frank would always have a picnic table for my parents, Don and Jeanne Morgan and anyone else. Frank was very good to my parents and they enjoyed both Linda and Frank's company very much. On behalf of my brothers Kirk, Brent, Greg and myself I extend our sincere condolences to Linda and Frank's family.

My sincere condolences on Fran's passing. Knew him when he lived on 2nd St, I believe. I lived on Qual. We had a mutual friend, James Delaney. The three of us had our share of pub hopping in those days. Sorry to say I lost touch. Now, he is reunited with Linda and his many many friends. May his soul rest in the peace of Christ.
