Frank was a giant in the eyes of my friend Michelle (Frank’s daughter). You would have thought he was 10 feet tall and wore a super hero cape by the way she described him. Because I live in Michigan it took a while to meet the amazing runner, story teller giant of a man. When I finally got to meet him she was spot on. He was a giant, but in so many more ways than she described. He was gentle and patient and kind. He was interested in me as a person not just Michelle's friend. When we parted I remember him call his daughter by a nick name (Mitch). I asked her later how it came about. The story was endearing, something only a father and daughter could share. At that moment, I knew he was taller than 10 feet. His height reached to the Heavens and so did his heart. God rest your soul Frank. Suzanne Gareiss
