      My God my God oh my God! Tears are falling because You know how special this man means to so many, young and not so young alike! For a long time I carried this feeling of dissatisfaction, and this feeling of anger and regret that this man’s blood sweat and tears would remain like folklore. Mount Vernon High School couldn’t give him the recognition he deserved, but through Uniondale High School and Jordan Crafton his brilliance and power shines bright and lives on. Thank You Most High for putting Frank Abel​​ into all of our collective paths! My children Patrice Brown​​, King Robin​​and Tei Robin​​ are just three of thousands who will forever be grateful for knowing him. Thank You God and THANK YOU MR. ABEL! Love and Respect ALWAYS! None more deserving! Fantastic job to all his “children”, VERY proud of ALL of you!
