Uncle Frank was quite the entertainer at all the family reunions! I always loved seeing him and laughing at his facial expressions and jokes!
Love you aunt Margaret and family!

I worked for Frank and Margarete in the early eighties. I laughed more, learned more than any one can imagine. I also learned about agape love from both of you together.
Frank kept us all rolling. We will remember and miss Frank with warm love always. Margarete please know I am here for you. Charles and I are so blessed to have had you both in our lives.

Frank was always telling some funny story. I think they were mostly true, and this made them even funnier. He was never afraid to to make a funny face in a crowd to cheer someone up, either. He was missed when he had to move and will be missed here as he has moved on to glory. Looking forward to seeing Frank in eternity! Praying for Margaret and the family as you grieve.

Frank and Margaret lived beside my Aunt Glen in Hamlin where we visited often. They were the cutest couple and so fun and kind! I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers.
