God bless you, Frank. A sweet, shy and lovable Italian gentleman who loved to slow dance. He will always be in my heart, thoughts and prayers. My first one and only steady boyfriend. He said "I'm a lover, not a fighter." " don't call me, Frankie/" may you and all of your VietNam buddies that have passed- rest in gods' peace, Amen.

I've enjoyed your handsome face, beautiful smile and your warm and caring heart. Your voice is still in my mind with the memorys you gave to me. Always with us, always you are there. This gift you gave can not be taken by war, death or time. The pain and loss does not cloud the memorys of rustling autumn leaves, sparkling snowflakes, gentle rainy days and warm summer nights. The laughter and tears created this bond. Remembering your courage, determination and sacrifice, today...tomorrow...and forever.
