Frankie Rzucek has always had a close relationship with his sister - and he spoke about her free spirit during her funeral in 2018.
“When she was growing up, she was a perfect role model,” he said to the mourners. “She had a lot of friends and was very popular which made it difficult for me to be her little brother trying to protect her from heartbreak and other things. She moved out at 18 and never looked back. "
