Frank passed away Monday morning (October 14, 2013)
Frank was very sick and told us he was at peace with dying and, although he told us that he wanted to die at home, after three very difficult nights he said he was willing to go to the hospital for us when we proposed going just for stronger IV antibiotics and non invasive pulmonary treatments that we could not do at home. Once admitted to the hospital when it was clear that the only ways to keep him alive were the kinds of procedures that he definately did not want, we put him on Comfort Care and Mikee and I and Corey, Alexi and Erika sat around the bed loving Frank for several hours. Although he couldn't talk, he made little sounds and responded to us the whole time. He was very present with us. He died at 6:24am with all of us and with no pain. Frank made dying look easy.
Frank left tons of content which we will continue to add to this site!
