Frank was a member of our Appleton VFW Post. Frank would tell stories of D-day. I could tell it was tough to talk about it. When I went to Normandy a few years ago I scooped up some sand from the beach in a mason jar. I gave that sand to Frank. Only Frank and I knew how much that sand meant. So from that time on, each time we met, we had a drink together. He called me buddy. So Frank, now have a drink with your old buddies, the ones who left you on that beach so long ago and I'll have one here. Till we meet again may God hold in the palm of His hand.
