My grandpa was an incredible man and I loved him very much. And to think that his time with me is over is heartbreaking. Every time my sisters and I would come to visit for as long as I can remember he’d be the first one at the door to greet us. He was always very excited to see us and he would do what ever he could to make us the happiest kids on this earth and I don’t think I could be more grateful. Every time we would come he’d make sure to get our favorite snacks and food and I know because grandma would always say how he did it because he loved us so much. He’d make sure to have them on hand because he knew we enjoyed them. I remember as a kid he’d always wake up early to watch tv with me and Madi. He was a very special man who was funny,caring,loving, and brave. When my sister told me to wake up last Sunday because mom needed to tell us something I wasn’t expecting to hear that my grandpa had passed away. I was in shock for a second until I finally comprehended what happened. It was the saddest news I’ve heard. But he’s ok, he’s not suffering anymore and he’s now in a better place where he will be taken care of and free from any bit of pain. Thank you for everything you’ve done for our family grandpa I love you so much and I’ll never forget you.

I am so grateful that I was able to take the time and care for him just as he would’ve for me . He made us laugh and he made us angry at times with his stubbornness , but we always knew that he loved each and every one of us from the bottom of his heart and he always will . No matter his condition he always managed to make me laugh in some way and I will always be grateful for that because I make sure to look at the positive in every situation before the negative . With that being said , he is comfortable and free of any burdens he’s had to endure now . I love you Grandpa.

My grandfather was such a terrific man. He accomplished so much throughout his life and loved us grandkids with all his heart. Every time we came to visit, his was the first face we saw. He always made sure we were happy. He was also very funny and kept our spirits up with his corny jokes that he spoke religiously. He did so much for us and I’ll miss him dearly. My grandfather was the only one I’ve ever had and I wish I could have spent more time with him. I love him so much, but now I know he’s resting. Now I have my very own guardian angel. As he’d say, have you heard the latest? Well it’s finally out; Heaven has gained the most wonderful, truly magnificent soul there is. I love you Grandpa ❤️

With a heavy heart I write this. Mr.Frank Harrell and family welcomed me with open arms. Their family was the first people I met moving down from NYC to FL. Always kind. I do remember his sense of humor and would always greet me when I stopped by. Always fun to talk to. Will love and miss you always. Sending my love to Mary Debbie and Frank during this difficult time. ❤️

One of my fondest memories was the Christmas lights production every year. Frank would be putting up the lights and Mary would provide the direction. Their back and forth on the light placement keep us neighbors in stitches. Even now the memory still brings a smile to my face. Frank, you will be missed greatly. To Mary, Debbie, Frankie, and Steven, I pray you find peace, strength and love from God during this time and always.

Whenever I would visit the family, Mr. Harrell always had a joke or kind word to lighten up my day. He will be sorely missed. Rest in peace and thank you for your service to your country, Mr. Frank H. Harrell.
