| Alan Frakes, left, and James Young will mark their 27th anniversary on Saturday, May 1. The two met in 1981 when Young moved to Dallas from Seattle and went to work in Frakes’ custom framing shop, The Frame House. They moved in together in 1983. The two men now co-own The Frame House, located on Routh Street, which Frakes opened in 1967. They plan to celebrate their anniversary at home with friends.
