Francis & family, we were saddened to hear of Frank’s passing but also knew that the reunion between him & Kim must have been a sight beyond words.
We will continue to pray for you for the peace & comfort that only the Heavenly Father can provide.
We love you all.

Words cannot adequately capture the goodness of this man. I have been lucky enough to call Frank and Frances my neighbors for over three decades, but they have been so much more than that. They have been wonderful friends. I am forever grateful for all of the times that Frank would come over without fanfare and mow the ditches, do the weed-eating, or help trim a bush. He quietly went about his life, letting God's love shine through his everyday living. I know he is in the presence of our heavenly Father, but I sure will miss him. May God comfort the family and give them peace.
