Big Frank ( or little Frank if you knew his father) was a serious student of life, truth and information and My Brother.

He helped me through so many tough times and understood that" IT IS FAR BETTER TO UNDERSTAND THAN TO BE UNDERSTOOD"

Big Frank:

Your soul and your spirit shall resonant with us forever. You were one of the truly authentic brothers! I enjoyed every moment in your company. I enjoyed your tutelege on D.C. musicology, our conversations, impromptu gatherings, and philsophical sessions. We are all better Hamptonians because of your spiritual contributions. And, never forget that you'll never be forgotten!
