Sad news of a dear forum member.

I write this post with a heavy heart.
My dear friend and yours Frank "phrank" Watson passed away yesterday morning.
Phranks wife contacted me this evening to let me know of his passing and to let me know he spoke of me very often.
She said he loved the forum and all of its members and couldn't wait to do the countdown.
Phrank and I talked often on the the phone and through text messages,
I even filled in on the countdown when he couldn't.
my fondest memory of phrank was searching for phrank in a "stolen" golf cart @ goshen two years ago, he was so happy that we came and found him to say hi.
Phrank will truly be missed in my heart and my heartfelt condolences go out to to his lovely wife and family.

And finally " thanks phrank"

Turbs

I didn't know him but always saw the 'Thanks Phrank' messages and thought it was a neat way to do a countdown. So very sorry and sad to hear he has passed. May God grant some measure of peace and comfort to his friends and family at this difficult time, my prayers for his wife - I can think of no greater sorrow than losing half of who you are.

So sorry hear of Phranks passing. Will miss his countdown. Thanks Ron for the info. Thoughts and prayers to his wife and family. I'm sure he'll start a new countdown until his beloved wife joins him. RIP Frank!
