I am saddened with the passing of my longtime friend, Bob Franks.
For thirteen years, Bob Franks and I represented the 22nd District in the legislature.
I could garner up many stories and happenings during the course of our careers; but, for now, I will just say he was priceless.
Bob was a dear friend to me and my family. We grew up in politics together. We went to thousands of political events together. We shared many laughs and stressful times together.
Bob was a prince. A gentleman. A politician who served with dignity and integrity.
His positive influence on his family, his friends and the people of New Jersey will be remembered forever.
We will all miss him.
