"The loss is unmeasurable but so is the love left behind."
Franklin enjoyed watching sports as well as talking about it throughout his life. He also enjoyed watching western tv shows, some movies, and some game shows. Franklin enjoyed crossword puzzles, Wood search puzzles, other word puzzles, as well as other types of puzzles. Franklin enjoyed chess, especially if an opponent came along that could give him a challenge. He was creative, inventive, and a problem solver. He was known to talk for hours, as well as barely saying a word for days. He could cook anything at a drop of a hat, and of course he did prefer his staple recipes. Franklin was always there to help anyone in need. Franklin will be forever loved and missed.
