I grew up with my friend Frank Simmons and this is how I found your site. Frank was the big brother I never had, and I have missed him for a very long time. I was also a friend of the family and his brother Shulken whom I also have lost touch with. Frank, Ben Lee, and myself were the Three Musketeers.
