Frankie has always had a talent for drawing. One Christmas while Frankie was home on leave his mom asked him to write down thoughts that went through his mind when his dad died, what transpired after in his life, what helped him cope, and how he felt today. It has taken almost a year for him to hand draw and color each page of the book as he is a Lance Corporal presently serving in the Marine’s Infantry unit. His brother Mike loves to rap and collaborated with Frankie by putting Frankie’s words into rhyming sentences.
Frankie was inspired to write this book in hopes of helping other children realize they are not alone in what they feel or what thoughts may enter their minds. The thoughts and questions after losing someone are common to everyone; they are not alone in this! The collaboration of two brothers in writing this book has helped them tremendously get through their losses and realize how much they gained in their lives and learned from their tragedies.
