Touched by Frank Thomas story
Recently it came to my attention that you (John Oncken) wrote an article about my father in the Wisconsin State Farmer, dated Aug. 5. You both were friends long ago. What a joyful story to read and to dedicate a current article about a great man who contributed so much to the food industry.
I wanted you to know how very touched I was that you took the time to run a current piece about "Frank Thomas: He Changed Dairying - And The World." It's a beautiful recap as well as a treasured memory about my father's dream and what a genius he was. The entire family has been so very proud of his accomplishments. I actually still have the original story you published in 1997, shortly after my father died.
Thank you for keeping the memories alive. After all these years, it is a good feeling to know the dairy industry still acknowledges and credits Frank Thomas for his discovery and development of the whey protein process.
