    Hey Uncle Frank, Thank You for all the great memories my family and I will never forget. Whether through my childhood years in Nova Scotia or as time progressed, visits with my own family. Uncle Frank you were always up for a good game of cards or a fun trip to the beach. My favourite times were watching you make my boys laugh with your little gifts/pranks. The gifts always took far too long to open because of the amount of scotch tape you wrapped them in, we would all laugh. You are always in our hearts 🎹🎹🎹 Lots of Love from the Hayley's Troy, Liz, Tyler, Connor, Ethan

    My Uncle Frank was a very sweet man, with a bit of ornery that made him the fun uncle. When my brothers and I were young and we could visit, Uncle Frank and Aunt Sandra doted on us. Frank loved taking us around to the beaches and historic sites in Halifax, and to visit PE Island for the Anne of Green Gables tourist sites. And he loved a good beach day. I will always think of him when I hear music from his era. Miss and love you Uncle Frank 💕. - Stacey
