So sorry to hear of Frank’s passing. He was a nice and very unique man. I remember his obtaining two dogs (homely looking critters) from Australia when he was still working at Birdsong Peanuts. Kay Simons and I took several phone calls tracing those dogs on their journey to the states. Frank named them Kay and Helen.
