  1. With loving thoughts of Frank and prayers for Alice and the family. Rose and I will long remember, with greats joys, the times we shared with Frank in the choir at University Christian Church. With sympathy and love. Fred & Rose

  2. Dearest Laura: We are truly blessed with your friendship and also with your close family…Our heart goes out to you and your Mom…Both your parents have shaped you to be who you are…Though we know your heart is broken with the loss of your Dad, we also know he no longer is in pain and is able to be in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ…We envy him. Take Care and we\’ll continue to lift your Mom, you and your family in prayer that you\’ll look to the Lord and realize he\’s truly blessed you with the Dad who loves the Lord. God Bless You… Curt and La Verne Weeks

  3. Alice…. It was a wonderful week together, although we wish it was for a brighter celebration. But…as your pastor said…what brighter a celebration than Frank going home to be with Jesus. We look forward to your coming up sometime soon, and will be in touch often. We love you, and will cherish our time together with family this past week. Love, Kris & Ken

  4. I think Dad would have liked the Memorial Service for him. It was very touching to see all those he touched come together to say their final good byes or “See ya later..” I know we will see him later. I take comfort in the fact that he is with our Lord. Thank you to all who were involved with Dad\’s life and thank you to all who made his memorial special. Chuck and the choir who would not say they would not be there, and for all the ladies who volunteered their time and efforts to supply food and beverages for the reception after. May God truly bless you all, as He has blessed us with a special Dad.

  5. With deepest sympathy. May it comfort you to know, someday we will be reunited with our loved ones in heaven. We will be holding you up in our prayers!

  6. Dear Laura and family, I can only imagine the pain and grief you are experiencing. I know you will miss your dad very much, but rest assured that you will see him soon and very soon. Please know that you are ever in my prayers. Hold onto Romans 8:38 …”For I am convinced…” Much love, Candy
