    I am not even sure were to start. I met Frank when I met his daughter Stephanie in the 7th grade. (Steph and I were best friends). Frank welcomed me into their lives like one of his own. I spent almost every weekend (sometimes) weekdays at their home. My dad and Frank were pretty good friends as well. He loved his family and children very much! He adored his wife Cheryl too. I remember when Emily was born he was very concerned about Cheryl and the baby. We took a trip to Chicago one year and they let me tag along. I remember Frank making sure we ate and he always made us laugh. He was such a hard worker too. I remember that old black Ford pickup truck. He’d drive Cheryl crazy raving up the engine! He never once made me feel like an outsider. I know for sure he’ll be missed by his children and family. I love the Coleman’s always have. 💕
