Frank and I go back to high school. There are too many great memories to list here, suffice it say it was a great ride. I'll never forget the summer he visited me in Italy and we spent a couple of week together with Bill Rose, Bob Morse, and Sue Jensen. Rest well my friend. I pray that God will give your soul rest beyond the river.

I grew up with Frank, and we won the Philadelphia High School Basketball Championship together in 1962. I am glad I mostly played with Frank. When we played one on one, he blocked my shots most of the time. Wow! Frank always displayed the dignity of a Black man in America even during his hell-raising days.

Frank Card and I both attended West Philly H.S.. I was fortunate to play on the same team for several years with Frank in the Baker League. I have played with and against some of the very best professional basketball players of all-time....Frank Card without a doubt belongs in that group. Will miss you dearly my brother.

So glad I got the opportunity to get to know Frank in the past year or so. So easy to become friends with, and a great soul. He always made me smile, always had kind words to say, and he definitely had a deep love for his beautiful wife Charlie and talked about her all the time. Frank also loved his ABA pro basketball brothers - and they loved him. Frank, you lived life very well my friend, and it was a better world with you in it. I'll miss you man. Scott
