  1. This is a lovely memorium to another Lab employee. I am always proud to read the heartfelt articles that TABL publishes. While I didn’t know Frank personally, there are others who I bumped elbows with on occasion but never gave a thought to a personal life. This brings home to each of us how fragile we are. He will be missed and – – from what I’ve heard – – admired for his tenacity to hold onto life to the very last second.
