When asked what inspired the song, Frank commented that “I wanted to memorialize my deceased parents in song and used the family heirlooms that I have come to possess from their departure as the vehicle. To me, these pieces of furniture are made of more than wood and steel. I can still feel the presence of my parents and grandparents and that helps me cope with their having crossed over. In the song I speak of the influence my parents had on me and how this is being passed on to my children. I’m pleased that the judges felt the song has universal appeal.” The song can be heard on’s website at

While being full time administrator for Cardiology Associates of Fredericksburg, in his spare time Frank is concentrating on his songwriting career and hopes to get a recording or publishing deal. He performs occasionally in Fredericksburg’s coffeehouses and book stores.
