Frank Burns was a good old boy, one of the best of that kind. He had his opinions, but he wouldn’t hurt a flea and he spread a lot of love. GS3 was camping with us at Whispering Winds, known to some Michigan bluegrass fans as Wendy Smith’s place. It was the July 4th festival, 2003. Frank gave him a ride, and GS3 was happy, happy happy. We gave Frank a copy of this photo years later, he squinted, looked again, and then said, oh ya, I remember.
We last saw Frank at Jimmy Kittle’s show, Pickin’ on Cystic Fibrosis, in October. We’ll miss Frank, things won’t be the same.
