ON A PERSONAL NOTE:
Frank gave me my first "real job" as a dishwasher in his Summersville cafe back in the early 70's. I quickly advanced to waitress. One time, I remember my friends coming in on a Sunday afternoon begging me to go swimming with them. I ask his wife if I could go and she didn't think it was a good idea to leave them with only one waitress, Frank said, "Oh, let her go have some fun!" He was a real nice guy. I also remember he was very handsome. People loved him.
