Had half day at work today as it was the funeral of Frank Brining.
Frank was the dad of some of our close friends and an all round top bloke. I had only known him these last three years after Elle and I got together but from the very first time I met him I got along with him fantastically.
He was kind and friendly and always the life and soul of a party, loving a good drink and a good gamble on the Bandits. I even think he was shining down on us all today as the bandit in the pub at the wake was dropping! I took £65 out of it!
A genuine and family-orientated guy, Frank’s memory will live on through His wife and his Sons Matt & Dave.
He’ll be sadly missed by all, and the turn out at the funeral just went to show how much people thought of him.
I would like to think that my Grandad, also called Frank, is now sat having a beer with him, looking down on us all and smiling.
Rest in peace Frank
