Never selfish, always kind

John Frank and I grew up in the same neighborhood. It's been more than 35 years since I've seen him. We worked on the job together and also got fired together. He called me Willie hot cake. I called him John tank. A truly good man and friend. He will be missed. Rest in God's arms my friend.
