    I would visit with Frank for a short time when I visited my
    wife at lake Ridge. One day while they were taking meal orders I went over and told the lady this man would like sauerkraut and pork haucks he told her that he would take that. Now he can have all the pork hocks and sauerkraut with his old friends

    My deepest condolences go out to the Zachmann family. I will always remember the fun times we had at Frank & Cathy’s home as young lads. Always a welcoming smile, a lot of humor, and great laughs! Frank, may you rest in peace.
