    To my Uncle Frank Gheen,

    Of the moments I have spent with my uncle are few. Of the moments I do recall is when he and my mother (his sister) would sit and talk about Vienna Virginia. They, Margaret, Dorthy, Frank, Betty and Alvin, reminded of kids when ever they made the trip. It warmed my heart
    to watch them remembering they're childhood in a small town they knew so well. One would begin to feel they on a tour of a museum, at least I did. I remember all the partys and family picnics reunions that always seem to coincide with my granddaddies birthday. I was very thankful for driving my mom and my self to Holy Cross hospital after I decided to try and cut my fingers off with a table saw, thank god he had not left yet. I can recall voices of family members who have passed on. Your fathers voice is as clear as my own. Our thoughts are with you three.

    So sad to realize that the Maryland Club will start meeting again this month & Frank will not be there. Frank was one of my mentors & friends at our club. Always anxious to give a helping hand. He will be missed but so glad he is now in a better place. Rest In Peace Frank!
