I'm very saddened to hear about Frank's passing. I only became acquainted with him in 2000 when I became a student at UCSB and was put in touch with him because he needed someone to plant cacti and succulents in his yard. For the two and a half years I worked for him, we became good friends from all the talks we had after I was done working in the yard. He's the first person that made me aware of the common disease "C.R.S." that he would claim to have bouts of! If I ever asked him where he wanted a particular plant placed in the yard he would tell me "You're the doctor, you decide; and if I don't like it, I can blame you!" He always had an awesome sense of sarcastic humor that kept me on my toes. He was one of those people who had lived through a lot of tough times and had a lot of wisdom to pass down. He was like having a third grandpa. I'll definitely miss stopping in and visiting with him on my trips down to Santa Barbara.
