    Some of my favorite memories with Daddy were mornings spent at Uncle Frannies house sitting at his big dining room table and listening to the two of them talk and eating whatever treat he had given me (that I probably wasn’t strictly allowed to have).RIP Uncle Frankie, and thanks for loving a little girl who followed her Daddy everywhere

    I’ll always remember Saturday mornings at Uncle Franny’s watching cartoons while he would visit with Papa. Those were some of my best childhood memories. Much love Uncle Franny & say hi to Papa for me.
