Farewell Uncle Frank

Uncle Frank passed away peacefully this morning with his wife, Leanna, by his side. Though his life was cut short by the early onset of Alzheimer's disease, he enjoyed the time he had to the fullest.

Frank was a son, brother, uncle, husband, father, actor, and friend and we will miss his smile, humor, and wit.

John and I want to thank you--family, friends, and those we've never met (you know who you are!) for your support and donations year after year to the Alzheimer's Memory Walk which raises awareness and funds for Alzheimer care, support and research. Even uncle Frank made a contribution by donating his body for Alzheimer's research.

Frank will forever be in our memories and we are grateful for the time he shared with us. Nothing can ever take that away...not even Alzheimer's. Even though he may be gone, we'll keep moving on to end Alzheimer's.

oh, please give Johnny's family our heartfelt condolences. My Gram's sister died of Alzheimer's related complications several years ago when I was an undergrad... it's a hard road for all those involved. I'm glad so many loved and cared for him in his last days.
