"Thinking of my old friend Frank. (found this searching online) My condolences Lolita. Been quite a few years.

Not surprised to see the pictures of Frank fishing. Remember the time we all went to Singing Hills Resort in Camdington Hills lake of the ozarks, gosh....late 80s early 90s? Remember that big fish fry we had when we got back with all those crappy?

Say hi to the boys from me Lolita if you get a chance.

Best wishes,

Missing you a lot today. It just doesn't seem possible a year has passed since you left us. There's so much going on with our family that you would love to be a part of! Wishing you were here to share it with us. Been a warm winter and the dogwoods are almost blooming - you know what that means - the crappie will be biting soon! Sure would be nice to have one more fishing trip, wouldn't it? I hope you know, somehow, that we miss you and love you."

Deepest sympathy to the family. And, Frank, you will be sorely missed. Rest in peace."

"Our dearest Frank, we had the same birthday Dec 17 and Van and I have really enjoyed spending it with you these last few years. There will be and empty spot in my heart as we celebrate your birthday from here on out. Never forgetting you. One of your biggest concerns was making sure your wife Lolita was taken care of after you were gone. I think you worked hard at that. Your family was your most important priority, you always tried to make them happy or help them any way you could, we admire that. A lot of your friends felt like family, you did that so you will greatly be missed. Your generosity was overwhelming but that's you Frank. Thank you for our prayers together, they were deep felt and something we will keep with us always, see you later in Heaven."

I love you and miss you so much already. Whenever you were around, your laughter and your stories would light up the room. When I think of my favorite memories of you, all I can picture is the sound of your laughter bouncing off the walls. Your dry sense of humor and deep love for our family is and always will be locked up in my heart. Thank you for all the awesome memories, and I can be happy even though I'm sad because I know that you're living it up in Heaven. Can't wait to see you again one day. Know that I love you and am thinking of you all the time. Your darlin',
