Condolences for Frank Konrad Guzinski
I won’t forget the times we went fishing on your boat at the Twin Lakes and back waters of Pawnee,unfortunately we always got skunked. Also remembered fishing with the nephews and grandpa Gary at Klein’s pond near Waverly on special holidays. You were a good Uncle to my son Julius, and spent the most time with him than any other Uncle he had. I’m sorry you couldn’t stick around with us longer but you knew where you should be better than anyone. ILY and RIP and find Christopher, Super Gary, Jack and Chelsea boogers and baby Zachariah to dance with in presence of Jesus!
