We are all sad to hear of Franks passing. Frank was one of those guys that you
felt blessed to call a friend. Truly interested in your life, caring, great
listener. His favorite place to eat was Cookys. He always talked about him and
Beverly eating there and how good the ham and brisket was. Frank will be missed
so much. Beverly and family we are so sorry, our hearts break for you all.

Beverly, so sorry to hear about Frank. Truly one of the nicest and most
thoughtful persons I've ever known. Talking to him about cars and tomatoes I'll
never forget. And his devotion to you and his regard for your family was
boundless. Especially enjoyed his special friendship with Bob Wootton. Can still
see them talking on the front porch at Petes house. He will be missed but never
forgotten. Thinking of you. God bless.

Franklin was my favorite uncle.I enjoyed sharing my birthday with him. For the
first 16 years of my life, he gave me a stuffed animal on our birthday. Beverly,
I'm glad he had you in his life. Gerald, Kenny and Debbie, he loved you and
always kept me up to date on your lives. He so enjoyed getting to see you more
the last few years. I'm so sorry you have to go through this hard time. All my
love. Donna K

I was so sorry to hear of Frank's passing. Even though we hadn't kept in contact
since my son was grown, I thought of both of them often. I'll cherish the
memories I have of him.
My sympathies to all of the family and friends
