    Frank, Happy New Year!! The rest below I sent to Harry and You via email. Yours was returned as the email must have changed (Same as currently shown here.) Though we'd seen you before, our 25th Anniversary stands out due of course to the occasion. We had laughs over it for the audience, some nice and serious comments, toasted us and us your complete CD collection for free! As always we were very happy to provide something extra in the "Tip Jar" The next is from the email I attempted to send you. Before I do, we visited our "old friend" on Sunday of Veterans Day weekend. As I told Aileen then, a voice told me to go upstairs and visit the "Hall of Heroes", in hindsight and in ignorant bliss of what was to come a couple of weeks later, I'm glad I did. We couldn't bring ourselves to go back in the end. We saved a picture someone posted of you, Harry, Carroll and Vic, it was a fitting end. To the email now: Sent on New Years Day 2020 @ 1247: "Harry and Frank, Today is the day to wish both of your families and you a very happy and the best on this New Years Day! While I was at work, Aileen was tracking the final show at Kevin Barry's. It was too bad it could've "streaming" live but, by all the pictures and comments it was obvious it was a huge success. We want to again, this time thank you both for all the great memories!! You both are the one's we knew the best and most certainly counted on the most to "entertain" us. Thank You Both. We're glad we got to go to Kevin Berry's on our usual Sunday night visitation for the last time over this past Veterans Day weekend. It was for the best as a "little voice" told me to go upstairs to the "Hall" for a visit and of course at that time we were still in a state of "ignorant bliss" of what was to come. With our apologies for not being there, we both felt it was best to keep our memories from that point backwards if you will. So at midnight we raised a glass of Champagne to family and friends (Yes that means you two as well.) and finally a shot of Tullamore Dew in memory of Kevin Berry's, Harry, Frank, Bill and all the other entertainers that have graced the stage there and of course to Vic and his wife as they go into retirement. Thank you both again for all the wonderful nights, song, conversation, a drink or two and anniversaries and birthdays we celebrated there. We hope our paths will cross again, until then, "fare thee well" and finally "Fair Winds and Following Seas" in the finest of Naval Traditions. Aileen and Pat Conklin USN/SS Ret." Be well until next time! Pat

    Frank: I was in Savannah this past week with Tom Murray. Thoroughly enjoyed your show. Unfortunately, I live in Denver. Do you ever tour this far West. I'd be happy to have a toast with you if you did. Thank you.

    Hi, Frank! Words cannot express how fun it was to see your smiling face again last Tuesday at Kevin Barry's in Savannah, GA. Your music and sense of humor were so very entertaining—especially when you sang “Yesterday,” after our “surprise reunion” (Thank you, Don!)—when sweet memories flooded my brain, and tears fell from my eyes! Thanks much for spending your time with us at the table. Wishing you well until next we meet, Ann

    Wow Frank--impressive website! Didn't know we have such a celebrity in the neighborhood. Seeing you perform in Savannah is now on my bucket list. I squeezed it in between learning to juggle and visiting Area 51. Give my best to Simon and Frances; not in that order. Lee

    Thanks for singing Patrick mcgintys goat last night it was moms favorite, then you sang a song of a mom singing to her son which really made me cry but your wonderful toasts helped me smile. You should write a book of your toasts?

    Hi Frank! It was great meeting you the last few days in Savannah. Music was fantastic and Randy has been singing that chicken song ever since you introduced it to us. He is reading your book now. We wanted to thank you for your hospitality! Hope to see you soon again! Randy and Liz

    It's been a long time since we have seen you. Back at the old club in Wytheville, the table full of "clergy" that gathered every month[early '90's]. Hope all is great with you and yours. Shalom, the Mackey's
