Dear Ruth and family, It is with a heavy heart that Bruce and I write to leave our condolences in this time of great grief and loss of Frank Edward. He was like David, a man after God's own heart. I will always remember his great kindness, gentleness, and faithfulness. He truly exhibited the fruit of the Holy Spirit. May you all feel the powerful presence of our Lord during this time of mourning. "The Lord is close to the broken-hearted and saves those crushed in spirit." Psalm 34:18. In the strong love of Christ, Gina & Bruce Miller

Angela and family, I remember so well your daddy's goodness. What a blessing to you and Lisa to have been raised with a gentle Godly father! I know you'll so miss his presence. In the days and weeks to come, may you and your mother and all the family experience the peace and comfort that only the Holy Spirit could bring at a time such as this. With love and prayers.

Ruth, Lisa and Angela: I was very saddened to hear of Frank's passing. He was such a wonderful example of a good man. When I was a little boy growing up on Horseshoe Rd there was nothing more exciting than to see the "Mailman" coming up the road in anticipation of what surprises he would deliver each day. Over the first 30 years Frank was a daily fixture and influence in my life. After his retirement I would often see him and Ruth at the grocery store in Creedmoor and stop and talk. Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss, and may GOD be with you in the coming days.
