To my sister, my nephews, my niece, and their children. Words cannot express how sorrowful my heart is at losing my favorite brother in law. I don't need to tell you what a great man he was. He had a very large influence on my children's lives by showing them what a father was. We will miss him terribly, though not as much as you will. Cherish the memories, the good times and not so good. Much love to all. Anna Marie/Rea

Aunt Choo, Robert, Scott, Shannah and all who are hurting now, I ask that God please provide all of Uncle Franks' loved ones comfort during our sorrow, strengthen us with hope, and breathe peace into our troubled hearts.

Thank you God for the gift you gave us in him, for the joy he gave all who knew him, for the memories that will live forever in our hearts and the peace in knowing one day, we will join him and so many other lost loved ones in Heaven.

For Uncle Frank:

God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be so he put his arms around you and whispered, "Come to Me"

With tearful eyes we watched you and saw you pass away and although we love you dearly we could not make you stay.

A Golden heart stopped beating hard working hands at rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us He only takes the best

It is so funny i am lost for words on this.I have known Frank and Mary my whole life.They are very good friends with my mom and if you know my mom thats hard to do.Frank was always smiling and joking and always knew what to say Frank and Mary could calm a sitution in any room and make it fun.I remember my wedding Frank said lets get this party started.Then when i had a low point in my life he calmed my mom down and told her everything would be ok.So what i am trying to say is we have lost yet anther great guy but when god sees that we are just to tired he takes us to the most comfetable bed there ever is and lets us rest so rest in peace dear frank and let your light shine on.
