We first met in junior high school and marched together through school, including college. I always loved your energy for life and your interests in everything. I will never forget how your father lent me/us his Lincoln Continental to take late night rides to Ratners for strawberry short cake. What father lends a son's friend such a car for such a reason? Only one of many cherished memories. Even when you had the audacity to move to LA I never stopped thinking of you, Elzabeth and Alex. You are permanently implanted in my heart, part of me forever.

FRANKIE AND I WERE BEST FRIENDS GROWING UP IN THE BRONX DURING OUR JUNIOR HIGH AND HIGH SCHOOL YEARS--OWING TO OUR RELATIVE SIZES WE WERE KNOWN AS "LAUREL AND HARDY"--I HAVE MANY FOND MEMORIES OF SPENDING TIME WITH HIM AT HIS HOME; PLAYING HOOKIE FROM JUNIOR HIGH--(ONE DAY WE PLAYED HOOKIE, RETIRED TO HIS ATTIC AND TRIED TO CONJURE THE DEVIL--WE SCARED OURSELVES SO BADLY WE HAD TO QUIT)--; ALSO FORAYS INTO MANHATTAN SCROUNGING AROUND JUNK SHOPS, BOOK SHOPS AND VISITING HUBERT'S FLEA CIRCUS ON 42ND STREET--IT WAS THROUGH FRANKIE I MADE ONE OF THE CLOSEST FRIENDSHIPS OF MY LIFE WITH HIS COUSIN RICKIE KOHN (ALAS ALSO GONE). THOUGH WE LOST TOUCH DURING COLLEGE I NEVER CEASED TO THINK OF FRANK (I HOPE HE THOUGHT OF ME FROM TIME TO TIME) AND WAS GRATIFIED TO LEARN HE HAD BECOME SUCH AN EMINENTISSIMO IN THE ANTIQUARIAN BOOK WORLD--THERE'S MUCH I COULD SAY ABOUT WHAT FRANK MEANT TO ME--NOW ALL I CAN SAY IS "HAIL AND FAREWELL."

Frank, in the recent years before his final health decline. Always smiling, always happy, always ready to chat.
