"my dad was the best dad any girl could ever ask for.
I was and always will be his baby girl.
Any time i was feeling sad or upset about anything, all i would have to do is
look at my dad and i would instantly have a smile on my face. he always cheered me up.
he had a heart of gold and a smile that was unforgetable.
we had some awsome times together and im going to miss him so bad.
i miss wakeing up in the morning and seeing him watching cartoons with the grand kids.
he loved his grand kids and great grand kids so much , his family was his whole world
thats what he lived for. he was their for everyone, friends and family everyone.
its going to be hard livin without him. he will always be in my heart and deaply missed.
I love you daddy forever and always.

love always, your baby girl"

"‎11/26/2010 ~ R.I.P My Buddy Ol Pal Frank Hand
~ 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. Although we loved you dearly, we could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, hardworking hands at rest. God...... broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best."

"Frank’s Spirit of Christmas    
By Maritza Adams

Not until this year had I ever felt
“The true meaning of Christmas…”
Decorate this house to the fullest!
Celebrate family with the Love you All deserve!
For the happiest days I lived have been the ones spent with you…

I may not be here in the flesh,
You may not see me as you use to
But feel my presence as you think of me
Feel my love, as I fill your heart with Love

And in those instances when you have doubt
When worldly happenings surround you
Count on my spirit being with you always
For the Spirit of Christmas I have found!

Love each other unconditionally
And take comfort in these words
Don’t think I left without you
I just left ahead of you,
And until we meet again, BELIEVE!

"Frank hand,
This man was my grandfather. And he was great at it. I
have so many fond memories of him; these are called the good ones. And I have a lot of good ones. There are too many too talk about right now, so I will some it up to some of my favorite good ones.
         Like when I went and stayed the summer with him and Nan in las Vegas. I was sleeping on the couch that summer. Well I was tell papa showed up after two or three days gone, he said he was fishing with friends at lake mead and he lost his wallet and pay check over the edge of the boat…. Well needless to say papa was at casino, and Nan was pissed... So I gave up the couch and slept on the floor next to couch, and papa and I watch hunting and discovery channel all night for like two weeks.
Another good one I have of papa was fishing. He really loved to fish. All kinds. Mainly cat fish. The last trip I went on with papa was after Grandpa Billy john passed. We had a great day at the lake on grandpa’s boat. We didn’t catch a lot of fish, but we hung out on the boat what seemed like all day. The fun part of that day was when papa tried to pull the boat into the trailer. Let’s just say he didn’t go in straight. After a few laughs and a couple tries, we ended up with a bent trailer and damaged pride. Papa shore was frustrated. But we laughed like hell after words.
The last good one I am gunna talk about, and this one is a good one. I will carry on with me tell the day I die. This last thanksgiving. As we all know papa was battling cancer. He has been sick for a while now. And for the friends and family that were there, you wouldn’t have even known it. Papa had put his game face on and a spring in his step. That day he was laughing, visiting and teaching me a thing or two on how to play a saxophone. Papa kept on talking about how happy he was about how many great grand children there were at the house. He was very proud of his grand kids and great grand kids in fact, that day he pulled a couple of us out side and told us how much he loved us and that he was very proud of us he was. As if he knew that he needed to tell us that it was going to be alright, that he was going to be there for us no matter what. Papa had cared so much about us that he was trying to prepare us for what was happening the very next day. This is who papa was.
In short, it is not just the goods ones, but the good ones we loose. And papa was one of the good ones. He really was"
