Frank introduced me to a part of my family I didn't know existed. I'll miss knowing he's there, even though I hadn't connected with him for a long time. A wonderful, generous man.. Jude

Mr. Watson was my high school algebra teacher as well. Math was not my thing, but he helped me understand it and to do well on it. He was a good and kind teacher. Blessed be Mr. Watson. SLG

I had Mr. Watson for highschool algebra. He was a wonderful teacher and sweet man. I still remember him coming to see a presentation I was doing after I graduated from college! Godspeed Mr. Watson.
