I'm so sorry to hear of Frankie's passing. I'm sure she is dancing and singing aloud on the streets of gold with no more pain. I always loved for her to cut my hair which started when I was just a little girl about 4yrs old up until my late teens. Heaven sure did gain a beautiful angel. I'll keep the family in my prayers.
