Dear Barb and Family;
For you, I can’t even imagine your loss!
There are many things I would like to say, one of them is that I loved Frank as a brother.
Frank and I met in kindergarten !
We were inseparable from that point on – that is – until I left Martins Ferry to go to college after graduating high school.
Life got ahold of both of us and we may have talked once or twice a year by phone if we were lucky.
I suppose we just kept thinking there would be more time, right?
Frank and I loved life together, we fought together, we laughed and cried together when we lived in Ohio.
Frank is my BEST FRIEND and I can’t even tell you how sad I am that I didn’t even know any of this was happening.
I have no Idea what happened or how Frank passed.
A very ironic thing occurred just days after Frank died; I was trying to call his cell phone to talk with him . I had no clue that he had already passed. I left a message for him to call me back. I was late…. I’m so sorry!
In the 1970’s, Frank and Barb came to my home in Washington DC to have a good time and we did.
I had invited 3 or 4 additional best friends and their spouses as well. We drank beer, had cookouts and visited Williamsburg Virginia and Busch Gardens Amusement Park for a day!
I will never forget that day!
I only wish we would have stayed more in touch; but we permitted life to take over.
Please don’t let this happen to you!
Love is the most important thing that God will ask you about when you arrive in Heaven! “Have You Learned To Love?” is the question He will ask.
Frank, Fred and I used to have our own band. Frank was the “front man” and the singer. I played the guitar, Fred had the piano…. and I think Frank worked the drums at the same time! Franks favorite song – and mine – “Louie Louie” by the Kingsmen! Please enjoy Franks performance in your spirit! ……….

I love you Frank! You are my BEST FRIEND and I miss you so much!

Wanda and I are so sorry for your loss. Frank was a very kind a generous man and did much over the years to help my parents when they were alive. We are truly saddened for you and the kids in your loss. It was only weeks ago that Frank and I spoke on the phone. I had no idea that it would be our last time to speak with each other. May you and your family find comfort in this difficult time. Bob and Wanda

Frank hung out with me at the gas station when I worked a midnight shift 30 years ago. We would drink coffee together and I spent time with him at his home and with his kids while they were growing up. I had tried to get in touch with him a few years ago but couldn’t find his house in Powhaten. I will always valued his friendship. He gave me good advice but I would never listen to him. I look forward to seeing him in the future that God has promised when he is young and healthy again. Revelation chapter 21 verse 4: “He will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”

Oh Kimmy, Momma Barb, and Family.. we are unbelievably sorry to hear about “Father Frank” as we would call him. He was always fun at the house when we would slumber parties.. many moons ago. We know that no amount of words, flowers, cards, can ever take this hurt away. Give yourselves time to heal and never be afraid to reach out to us. We love you all.
