Kelly & Brett,
I'm so sorry to hear of your dad's passing.  Frank was a great guy.  Always made me laugh.  He was also wise, generous and kind.  I have no doubt you will miss him dearly.  Jus know that in time each day will get a just a little bit easier.   My deepest sympathies to you, your mom, and your families.

Arla,  I don't think I ever met your husband but want to send you a virtual hug at this time.  I am imagining the multitude of emotions and changes that this brings to you.  May God guide you through the days ahead.  Marla Adams

Wayne and I always enjoyed when Frank stopped by in his pick up and visited. Wonderful neighbors for years. Our son and Brett friends since the age of three. Frank will be missed.

We are sorry to hear of Franks passing.  I went to high school with Frank and graduated with him in 1958.  Enjoyed seeing him at our class breakfast during Western Days.
