To the family of Frankie Gies, May you all find peace in this time of sorrow, Frank was such a wonderful person full of life and no doubt he loved his family so much I remember him as a kid growing up he’s only a couple years younger than me but we all kind of hung out together during our young years and he was so funny and I can’t forget how handsome he was . May God comfort you all in this time,God bless you all and take care sincerely,Laura R Walton Vaughn

Frank, even though we were a few years apart, I will always remember you as my very handsome cousin Frankie who had a presence about him that could light up a room. Always a kind and gentle human being with such an uplifting spirit. To Dawn, Sarah, David and your many beautiful children, I am so, so sorry for your loss. This is just a reminder that we truly aren’t guaranteed tomorrow, but our character and those lives we touch are our lasting legacy. Frankie was a stand up human being, and his love for his family could be seen in the many post and pictures he posted. May God bless you all in this very sorrowful time, but may his memory stay alive in your hearts and live on forever.
