    Bev I’m so sorry for your loss! I’m glad he didn’t suffer any longer. ALS is such a cruel and unforgiving disease. Hopefully someday they will find a cure. My thoughts and prayers for strength as you and you family deal with this tragic loss. I cared a lot for Frank. We had a great and fun relationship growing up!
    Best Regards
